Life, you figure it or it will figure you. Not so bad, once you prevent being had.

once the world is figured out,
common sense and logic rule,
only to the sensible acknowledged.
totally ignored by the selfish select,
made up rules out of the normal realm,
penned for selfish motives within.
irrational actions in vision,
totally absent of a clear
mission.


one mother teaches responsibility,
the other smothers in comfortability,
one child grows up grown,
taught to fend on his own.
the other runs wild spoiled rotten,
taking and never giving nothing.
common sense dictates to one,
foolishness rules the other son.


one hand stuck out reaching,
the other extended out teaching.
learning the faces of personalities,
attitudes in operation modes,
wise men keep white hands,
fools shortens life spans.


ounce of prevention
is worth,
a pound
of cure.
