You’re making a big assumption.

Are you sure you got this right?

You may not have the answer

Jumping in’s not bright.


Don’t rush to make assumptions

Before you’ve thought it through

Stop to think, discuss a bit

Get other points of view.


It may not be what you’re thinking.

It could be you got it wrong.

If you had properly thought this through

You’d sing a different song!


Things mightn’t be how you think them

That may not be how to is.

If it turns out later you called it wrong

You’ll rememember I said this.


Don’t leap to wrong conclusions

Or get the wrong end of the stick.

Sometimes you have to pause and think

Before you rush to pick.

  1. It amazes me how you think of so much in response to the Daily Post prompt. As someone who is hopeless at writing poems, I take my hat off to you Mr Green…you are a poet through and through.


    1. Thanks for your kind comment. A better poet would spend more time getting them right but it’s kind of word association. I get the opening lines then take it from there, Rhythm and rhyme comes quite naturally to me.
