You Don't Know 2

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






If you don't know how to make love
you could love and get the shove.

If you don't know which end is up
you could be a wounded pup.

If you don't know rules of the game
you could lose praise and acclaim.

If you don't know the etiquette
you could be the roster cut.

If you don't know the candidate
you could pick a reprobate.

If you don't know what seeds to sew
you could marijuana grow.

If you don't know your doctor well
he could doctor up your bill.

If you don't know the exercise
you could find shocking surprise.

If you don't know your own limits
you could see some deficits.

If you don't know your own way home
you could wander off to roam.
