Three Strikes
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Three strikes you are out,
is what life is about.

We all make mistakes,
So fool me once shame on you.

Fool me twice shame on me for letting you.

Sound advice

Liked the way you put a new spin on this old adage. Sound advice, if taken would make life a lot less stressful. As always thanks Barb. It never fails when I am in some kind of a situation I read one of your poems and the answer to the problem is right there! :)
