Advice to young men from an old geezer


Correct Me If I’m Wrong

By Elton Camp

This poem is written for young men
So that they won’t easily be taken in

You must be wary of what women say
So take the word of a man old and gray

Their real meaning you must scrutinize
Or you are sure to get a nasty surprise

If she says, “Correct me if I’m wrong,”
There’s only one way you can get along

This request is setting you up for a trap
Please be smart and don’t open your yap

For if you should dare to correct her
She’ll say that you don’t respect her

It’s on the couch you’ll be sleeping
A closed mouth better be keeping

And whatever we said had better be said with just the right tone of voice. Elton
