The Fool

Naught to say I shan't disparage A cherub in its stroller Laugh at married horse-drawn carriage: Denounce a Holy-Roller! Point my fingers in their direction, And have a hearty chuckle! In Truth it is my own reflection- One which leaves me puzzled... No one should suffer ridicule, By the words bled from my tongue... But in the end, I am the Fool Who should never make the fun!

Chan What a clever and cute poem with a lesson sneakily put in there. No one should ever be made fun of or ridiculed for any reason. GGGRRR See you woke up the beast in me. LOL Thanks for the great comment on my Arsenal poem. Hugs and Love

What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on? lol Sorry, I just watched the first Hobbit movie again and couldn't resist. I am doing well, my friend, and I hope you are as well :)
