Don’t Ever Believe

What a politician tells you.

Than an insurance company cares.

That it will only sting a little.

In what you can’t do.

It isn’t possible.

That liver tastes good.

That you can’t learn something.

That you are forever stuck.

That forgiveness is impossible.

What you know is not true.

You can’t conquer your monsters.

A good life is work free.

In others setting your limits.

That change is impossible.

That love can’t be forever.

And never, ever, under any circumstances believe in:

One coat paint.




The list goes on….

  1. Yes it does, and the timing for this is perfect. Well said and much needed, Colleen. Thanks for the midweek positivity. πŸ™‚ Although, I must also confess to having liked liverwurst with dijon mustard on a sandwich…though very rare occasions at that. πŸ™‚


  2. I had to laugh at your punchline, but you’ve created a perfect list. Maybe we should teach our children to memorize it early! It could really be helpful to have that knowledge early. πŸ™‚


    • I’m all for memorization!!! Something we don’t use often enough in school any more.

      I think I would be better off if I tried to memorize something more often.

      Thank you for the laugh! πŸ™‚


  3. Ha ha ha – I like especially that one is not to believe in one coat of paint. Paint is perhaps like habits – never formed until the second or third coat. Great post, my friend.
