Know Which Way The Wind Is Blowing

Updated on December 7, 2013

Know Which Way The Wind Is Blowing

.

Before you begin,

That epic solo ride,

You might should take,

A few steps outside.

.

Heed my insistence,

Before you plot your distance,

Try to get a sense,

For that unseen resistance.

.

One blustering wind,

Or surprising gale,

Can rock your boat,

Or rip your sail.

.

If you need to take advantage,

Of the tiniest spark,

Or you if you’re aiming,

To hit your mark,

.

If you’re entertaining romance,

And heeding desire,

Playing with matches,

And starting a fire,

.

You might know the terrain,

And see the rain,

But you should weigh the gain,

Against the pain.

.

Consider all the variables,

Take special care,

Wet the proverbial finger,

And stick it in the air.

.

Before your fuel is added,

And the first ember is glowing,

Make sure you know,

Which way the wind is blowing.

Urinating In The Wind

.

You may know the latest trend,

See through a politician’s spin,

Don’t assume what’s around the bend,

And never urinate in the wind!

.

You may be true to the bitter end.

Take a hint from one who’s been.

Don’t take a road of sin.

And never urinate in the wind.

.

      Wiser words were never written, Micky. Especially in today's dangerous political climate.
