By Trinity Grove
Jumping into the deep end of a pool and telling yourself you’re safe.
Stepping into the dark and saying there is nothing there,
don’t let your eyes hang low;
too much sleep will make you sick.
(Class is in session.)
Be CAUTIOUS, for there are snakes in the grass,
monsters under your bed, and in your closet.
Watch what you say and be careful what you let them see;
court is in session, you WILL be judged.
Walking knives looking for backs, but to the pleasing eye they look
have more shade than others.
Lesson of the day: when you stick your neck out for someone,
make sure you can protect it.
(Class is dismissed.)
