HIS POOR USE OF GIFTS
This older man had a plan
To increase his readership…
He would have succeeded admirably,
Except for the occasional slip.
Now everyone makes mistakes,
That doesn’t seem his point….
But when he goes too far afield
Someone’s out of joint.
He wished he could have apologized
But he cancelled out as requested…
His slip of the tongue was not very wise,
But now the other feels less molested.
He forgot that a fun-loving comment could be
And that the receiver might think it more
In the line of disrespectful and rude.
His friends would say everyone makes mistakes,
At least he thinks that they would…
If he learns this time to keep his tongue in
Then the experience will have done good!
