There Is No Recall

Professor, therapist, author and poet.

If you can't make something right make nothing to thwart.
Once you have missed the flight there is no resort.

If you can't give something peace give nothing to war.
Once you have shorn the fleece there is no restore.

If you can't bake something hot bake nothing to burn.
Once you have tied the knot there is no return.

If you can't do something kind do nothing to hurt.
Once you have duped the blind there is no revert.

If you can't grant something means grant nothing to scoop.
Once you have spilled the beans there is no recoup.

If you can't craft something good craft nothing to mourn.
Once you have chopped the wood there is no reform.

If you can't say something nice say nothing at all.
Once you have thrown the dice there is no recall.
