  • Advice

    I once had a man say to me,
    Something that's stuck with me a lot,
    About people will give advice to you,
    When they quite often know naught,

    And when people have so much to say,
    They often forgot how to speak,
    And they'll talk about how much they know,
    And how they're in a good spot to critique,

    But the thing they always seem to do,
    Is give such brazen advice,
    And they'll tell you they know better,
    And that their words will suffice.

    The man told me to think about it,
    To ponder the things he had said,
    About his words and his advice--
    Or to just make my own mind instead.

    This is a clever bit of rhymed, circular logic Benjamin! To make up your own mind, after all that, is clearly the best advice of all! I enjoyed the read - thank you.

    I agree with RLW! The circular logic entertained me... i kept thinking, ' but he is giving advice!'

      Isn't it? It's such a common thing!

    I am paid to give advice. However, when I give it for free, it is worth nothing. But it is the same advice. Hmmm? Thought provoking piece on a very interesting subject - the giving and taking of advice. A minefield of good intentions with bad results! Nice write, bj!

      Thank you, Mhenry. I also enjoy your feedback.
      It's interesting that this is real advice given to me. That you should just ignore people's advice. Just such silliness. I think it's really good to seek out advice. But it's not always good to give it.
Working...
