Proverbs Redefined

 

Knowledge is power.

Misusing that knowledge

You become super-power.

*

Children are poor men's riches.

Now that’s the reason

Why population increases.

*

All that glitters is not gold

Just like all wise men are not old

And some blondes could be bold

*

Choose an author as you choose a friend.

And if that friend happens to be an author too

Then keep him till your end.

*

A man of words and not of deeds

Is like a garden full of weeds

Just exchange ‘words’ with ‘deeds’ above

To find not a soul acknowledging his deeds

*

Doing is better than saying.

When you can get everything by praying

So praying is better than doing.

*

Every Jack has his Jill.

And if you can’t find her still

Don’t roam around for a kill.

*

The proof of the pudding is in the eating.

If it turns out bad

Then the cook gets the beating.

*

Success is never blamed.

Defeat is never claimed

And jealousy is never tamed

*

So many men, so many minds.

So many eyes yet so many blind

Because everyone has an axe to grind.

*

Slow and steady wins the race

Then why the hell

Races are all about the pace.

*

Out of sight, out of mind.

Lovers don’t believe this

For love is blind.

*

An old dog barks not in vain.

And to know if it’s young or old

You must first endure the pain.

*

Follow the river and you'll get to the sea.

But if you follow your girl like this

You’ll end up facing wrath of her family.

*

Divide and rule

Until there’s nothing to divide

And nothing to rule, you fool!
