An addled mind is a terrible thing to chaste

Sunrise greets the day

The night is put asunder

Until sunset rests


Bad news travels fast

Good news travels more slowly

Therefore slow is good


The open mind sees

A hungry mind rarely starves

Until it closes


Dogs bite and bees sting

People are no different

They just know better


Mustard and ketchup

In orange combination

Adorn my new shirt


He who decides to

Look a gift horse in the mouth

Withers gratitude


Your diaper’s full

The voter’s way of saying

Change is overdue


When tar and feathers

Come together in Nature

Tar and feather greed


Laughing at yourself

Is a marvelous cure for

Almost anything
