WRONGING WRONG= RIGHTING RIGHT?



If you were applauding
Wrong,
How many
Applauds have you
Wronged?

If you were wellwishing
Wrong,
How many
Well-wishers have you
Wronged?

If you were clubbing
Wrong,
How many
Clubs have you
Wronged?

If you were accepting
Wrong,
How many
Acceptances have you
Wronged?

If you were hissing
Wrong,
How many
Hissings have you
Wronged?

If you were dreaming
Wrong,
How many
Beds have you
A[lB]righted?!
