Our Lips and Ears Poem No. 605)



Our lips and Ears

According to them;"
Loose lips sunk ship".
If so, how we keep our lips from slips?
Few things we need in mind
To be observe with care:
Of whom we speak, to whom,
and how we speak and
when and where.

Our ears,
The Scripture said ;
"He who have ears let him hear".
Don 't jeer unless you can do better.
Save yourself from trouble
Ignore unsolicited gossip
when not pleasing to someone's ears.
Leave it there...,don't keep it, nor repeat it.
By doing this, you'll save a soul in distress.

If you your ears save from jeers,
Keep these things safely hid
In earnest prayers.
Keep it in your personal profile:
Myself, Mine , I, My;
And you will never regret
When you meekly hid it,
And you 'll be please
That you did it.
Save the peace and honor
of others;
Don't tattle tale
Or story bearer.
