(g) OctaTimbre/ Learn Things Without Poking a Sleeping Bear (10.15)

Learn Things Without Poking a Sleeping Bear
(OctaTimbre syllable count)

Wearing a white had does not mean
That one gives others carte blanche to
Take advantage of someone – just
Because you have been given a
Second chance does not mean that all
Of your previous faults will be
Discounted – even a wiped slate
Has some residual chalk bits…
Learn from your mistakes, move with a
Smile onto the next adventure
