Sometimes bravado is foolish

It’s just not the right way to go

But casting aside all discretion

Is sometimes the only way through.


If there’s nothing much in the locker

And more to be gained than you’ll lose

Striding out with a swagger

Can be quite the best path to choose.


Act with sufficient conviction

Look like you mean what you say

It might just be foolish bravado

But perhaps you’ll still carry the day.
