What Ya Don't Know Won't Hurt Ya



Dearest soul, I haven't the love words They all seem so common and trite But other words flow a lot more easily Since I fell on my head from my bike Started out to be a poem about love But a friend said he'd sure beg to differ Pinched myself to make sure this was real A little too hard causing blisters My friend laughed and said “serves you right” “You silly old duffer!” he uttered Looked and thought, “he's really quite ugly!” He said “What?” didn't repeat what I'd muttered He's been a good friend for many long years But a few careless words can hurt 'em So sometimes it's best to hold back just a bit What people don't know won't hurt 'em! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I agree with you, but Dragon thinks differently... He steamed me from behind to prove his point. Then ask 'what you don't know won't hurt you?'... Ha! He did prove his point, but was a Bad Dragon in doing so... so I took his barbecue sauce away... At least my sneakers won't suffer today... LOL
