Have you ever jumped out of the fry pan
to land in the middle of a blazing fire?
Said or done something wrong and realised
it just as the words left your mouth
[or you hit the ‘send’ button]
Mistakes happen so healthiest to make
amends, apologise to those hurt rather than
wallow, worry and fry in our own stew
If we wait too long, hesitate or let it brew
It causes grief and can manifest as illness.
So resolve your issues as well as you can
Then avoid that clumsy fry pan
as curbing our foibles is sincerely freeing!
