Forget It Poem

Forget It Poem
Forget It

If you see a tall fellow ahead of the crowd,
A leader of the group, marching fearless and proud,
And you know of a tale whose mere telling aloud
Would cause his proud head in anguish be bowed,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a skeleton hidden away in a closet,
Guarded and kept from the day in the dark,
Whose showing, whose sudden display,
Would cause grief and sorrow and life-long dismay,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a spot in the life of a friend,
We all have spots concealed, world without end,
Whose touching his heartstring would hurt or rend,
‘til the shame of it showing no grieving could mend,
I think it’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

If you know of a thing that will darken joy
Of a man, or a woman, or a girl, or a boy,
That will wipe out a smile, or the least way annoy
A fellow or cause any gladness to cloy,
It’s a pretty good plan to forget it.

    Was just about to be spiteful in a passively-aggressive way when this showed up in my mailbox. I think I’ll just forget it. Two wrongs don’t a right. Thanks for the words of wisdom and my reminder to be a good person. Always enjoy the emails.

    Hey Shawn,

    The poem, ‘ Forget It ‘, is really nice. Carries wonderful meanings and connotations of life. Would help, if one remembers its tenets in daily living.
