As Teddy Roosevelt Said . . .

Daily Post Prompt, Poetry, Uncategorized

MAN TELLING OFFStifle your anger,
And keep it at bay.
You know if you let it go,
Somehow you’ll pay.

When people are stupid
And act quite insane,
Responding in anger
Just isn’t the thing.

It’s better to settle
Your ire, and then speak.
Remember, restraint
Is the tool of the meek.

So quiet your voice;
Each word carefully pick.
Teddy said it: “Speak softly,
And carry a big stick.”


Quote thanks to U. S. President Theodore Roosevelt, 1900.
