The Best Way I Have Figured Out

To stay away from doctors, a goal well worth my strive
Is the best way, I have figured out, to keep myself alive

To keep away from lawyers with all their legal fees
Is the best way, I have figured out, to avoid all bankruptcies

To keep away from scammers, and all their scamming plots
Is the best way, I have figured out, not to give them what I’ve got

To keep away from trouble, with all its’ troubling things
Is the best way, I have figured out, to avoid what trouble brings

To keep away from worldly matters, that might bring about my doom
The best way, I have figured out, is to stay locked in my room

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
