Said the knife to the hand

Don’t cut off your nose 
To spite your face
You will just become
A public disgrace
Bleed deceit
Breathless feat
Two cold feet
Destructive defeat
Of a face
You can’t replace.

    1. Hi Yassy! I was very happy to see you had posted today! On the way to and from photographing the Tulip Festival in Holland, Michigan yesterday, I listened to a couple of hours on the radio about how India’s covid-19 is spiraling out of control and thought about you and worried if you were okay. :-)) It was a blessing to see you had posted today. 🙂

        I take good care of myself. I don’t want to fall sick.
        Thank you for writin in .

      2. I think but am not certain that I had covid through most of January and beginning of February. My ex wife did the genetic testing and was positive. She and the girls were sick but all assumed it was flu. This led into me taking early retirement as I was out of sick and annual leave. But, now it’s better and I have had the two vaccinations (both times getting ill probably because I have almost zero immune system). I will keep you and yours in my daily prayers. This I promise. Take good care as well and please keep safe as possible. Thank you for responding and letting me know that you are well and taking good care. Aloha, Michael

  2. Don’t cut off your feet
    To spit in your face
    You will just become
    A public disgrace
    Bleeding feet
    On a bloody street
    Two missing feet
    Destructive case
    And saliva
    In your face 😁

  4. Yassy, this poem is very prolific stuff here! I’d go as far as to say its deep, and might even rival Shel Shilverstine. You be sure to let me know when you got a book out 😉

    Also, thank you for your support of my blog at Cascadia legends over the years!
    -Sincerely, Everybody’s Favorite Uncle, Gregory Thomas
