Don’t say it!

If an impulse comes to say
Some unthoughtful word today
That may drive a friend away,
Don’t say it!

If you’ve heard a word of blame
Cast upon your neighbor’s name
That may injure his fair fame,
Don’t tell it!

If malicious gossip’s tongue
Some vile slander may have flung
On the head of old or young,
Don’t repeat it!

Thoughtful, kind, helpful speech,
This’ a gift promised to each–
This’ the lesson we would teach.
Don’t abuse it!

Have a nice day!
