Flexibility Poem by John Sensele

Flexibility

Rating: 5.0


In your heart, harbor no malice
In your demeanour, catalyse amity
In your attitude, condone justice
To enliven the leaven of your community.

In your sleep, dream streams of progress
In your work, inject diligence and commitment
In your association, endeavour to digress
From factors that overemphasise mere sentiment.

In your prayer, communicate the truth
In your speech, delete any sense of superiority
In your marriage, avoid the void of uncouth
Cultures that soon undermine your matrimonial maturity.

In your writing, observe the seven Cs
Of sound communication, syntax
Brevity, courtesy, consideration and compassion ought to please
Your audience whose goodwill and patience you won't tax.
