A Lesson, but Learned?

What is a “lesson learned?”

There are many from the same experience

Don’t believe everything you think

And be picky about wisdom

Glean from an experience

Only what is really there to be learned

And beware of false prophets

Be careful with your mind

Love it, but with a healthy distrust

A hug from a stranger

With a pistol at your temple

Give the maiden of your dreams

A passionate kiss

As she dangles from the ledge

By a single finger
