Warnings are best ignored just before
Deceit is most inflated
when kept in gullible company.
Always let moths warm themselves
by the fires, set by hungry spiders.
Once bitten, twice shy
and what are scars to butterflies?
Or fish to barrels?
Or blades to pistols?
Willful ignorance is the new black
and someone on twitter says black is slimming.
It must be true!
This is good news.
Rainy day parades are patiently awaiting
their motorcade of complacent clowns.
Please don’t be late.
