Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

under advisement

22 February 2014



The Sunday Whirl

(eggs, trust, test, not, high, course, peep,
mug, trial, form, bring, blown, stick)



test dark water, barefoot,

trust not women, dice, nor cards,

trial-sized dreams are convenient,

bring eggs to toss at bards.


ration words, like can’t, no, not,

fill mugs until they overflow,

form opinions more slowly than you speak,

don’t always chase where winds have blown.


stick to telling only what you know,

if it looks cute and peeps, it still can bite,

and of course, the wisest person by far,

knows how highly to think on advice.
