AXIOMS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.

Proverbs come from history- guidance to modern people

Some are extremely poignant-others arerather feeble

Some examples of this show the quality and the spectrum

Meaningful moral maxim or dodgy dated dictum.

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”

On reading this I began to ponder

“Out of sight and out of mind”

The very opposite I think you’ll find.

“Half the truth is often a lie”

A thoughtful idiom that does apply

To tabloid papers’ distorted supply

Of half truths and rumours for you to buy

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”

Be grateful for what you have, don’t crave to be posh.

From adage to I-padage, some proverbs come unstuck

Their meanings are irrelevant-most people say “Yuck”

With old fashioned lingo anda brain that plays bingo

Makes me think in Spanish- “No way Jose” then “gringo”.

“We must eat a peck of dirt before we die”

The author needs a dirty pecker ramming in his eye.

“There’s many a good cock comes out of a tattered bag”

My cock and bag sag when confronted by this swag.

I thought that it was time to add to this list

In that sense my poem will be a catalyst…

“Every dog has its favourite conservatory”

“Don’t belie pleasure even when its vibratory”

“When votes don’t matter-try using a cutlass”

“Happiness is for life-not just for Christmas”
