Some folks are magnetic and some other people not.
Think of what attracts you to acquaintances you’ve got.
Certain things might warn you to refrain from making friends
with hot tempered scoffers whose contention never ends.
Who you take example from is something worth a care.
Hotheads may well catch you in a tangled, messy snare.
If you’re cautious you’ll stay back from anyone perverse.
That way you’ll avoid their destiny or something worse.
