Wisdom for Youth

Dost thou piss against the wall
And thy stones, be they intact?
Didst thou have a nasty fall,
Did they fall out of thy sack?
Good man, if not, then hearken to me
Listen to my sound advice
Lest thou being caught too surly,
Snare thy manhood in a vice.
Steer clear of the wayward woman
She who winketh with the eye
For surely Sheol and Abaddon
Underneath her bosom lie
Lest thy countenance be fallen
And thy seed be sown in vain
Listen now with rapt attention
And so avoid that way of pain.

Jonathan¬† O’Toole
