Wisdom Of The Cliché

A poem by Beverly Stock.


There’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you,

Though this be madness, yet there is method to it.

So much bad in the best of us, and so much good in the worst of us,

That it ill-behoves us to talk about the rest of us.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt. Every man has stupid thoughts, only wise men keep them quiet,

Make a statement without saying a word,

Be economical with the truth. *FINISH NAMING THE POEM!
