The Grammar of Life

If you are righteous, you need not fear harm.

And if you’re wise you’ll listen to advice.

Be prudent, don’t let insults spoil your peace.

Speak truthful, healing words. They’ll be your prize.


The lives of wicked folks are trouble filled. 

They think they’re right, and speak a lot of rot. 

Their anger quickly shows in what they say.

They lie, then die and soon will be forgot.
