Think once before you speak, twice before you write, and thrice before you do either.
WHAT TO MIND, SPEAK OR WRITE


Some mind their own business,
Some mind that of others.
The bee transgressing the norms,
Rarely, honey gathers.

Some speak when it is their turn,
Some speak on the others’.
To listen to the latter,
However, none bothers.

Some write what’s intelligent,
Some simply write nonsense.
On reading the latter, but,
The wise maintain silence.

Hence, my friend, it’s better to
Mind your own business.
If at all you have to speak,
Of words, don’t make a mess.
