Blogged down in Controversy

Better to think before you write

that post of haste you can’t recall,

knowing strong words can cause a fight

over some controversy you invite

with phrases carved upon your wall.


You might want to think before you write:

about the pen and all its might

stirring the pot, brewing rebellion small,

knowing strong words could cause a fight

joined by minions who in strife delight,

clawing others makes them feel tall.


Take a moment to think before you write,

about your reader and his delight

in picking at others until they fall

since your strong words caused a fight,

making violent passions ignite

contention and bickering from one and all.

Better to think before you write

those strong words, which might cause a fight.
