A pasted sorry or a smile, if not sincere, can be quite vile.
|AMENDS: a sonnet|
No cancer can be cured by just a pill.
A moment of love cannot wash neglect.
A single step can’t take us up the hill.
Good wish cannot save a murder suspect.
A life full of sin can’t be wished away.
A smile cannot lessen the pain of knife.
Without a candle there can’t be a ray.
Amends cannot absolve unfaithful wife.
My friend, better be watchful and don’t fall
Into the dark bottomless pits of hell.
Your entreaties there will fail one and all.
The way to come out of it none can tell.
Why not follow the straight and simple way?
Let not the wayside charms lead you astray.
