A Few Don'ts
Don't say, '' I see right through you,''
Although this may be true.
While you are reading others,
They, too, are reading you.
Don't lean on other people,
Put your shoulder to the wheel,
You will soon find many missions
At your shrine—to kneel.
Don't forget to mind your business.
Experience often shows
We gain but small advantage
When we tread on other 's toes.
Don't neglect the laws of health,
Whatever else you do—
With this one priceless blessing lost
Life holds but naught for you.
Don't forget financial help
When some friend needs a boost.
Favors shown in need, like chickens
Oft come home to roost.
Don 't pour your woes and sorrows
In other people's ears,
They can't carry double burdens
For their own increase with years.
Don't allow repeated failures
To discourage noble aim.
Where there is a will a way is found
Our object to attain.
