A Foolish Son
by Richard Sherrer

Not For Sale

A foolish son breaks his father,
Rather go cling to his mother;
Spoiled rotten feeling secure,
Does not leave any open door.

Angry women is like water,
Always talking as a daughter;
The constant drip never stops,
Or filling a balloon that pops.

Home and wealth are inherited,
Not inevitably merited;
But a wife should come from the Lord,
Who then should be loved and adored.

Laziness causes a deep sleep,
But zeal gives energy to leap;
Someone lazy hungers and thirsts,
Always looking for the worst.

If you obey laws you love life,
But if not you will look for strife;
And if always questioning why,
It is a sign you will soon die.

If you pity those that are poor,
The Lord will give an open door;
He will repay for the good deed,
Of somebody that is in need.

Discipline your son for still hope,
That perseverance lets you cope;
You might be causing his last breath,
And responsible for his death.

Listen to advise and accept,
Discipline and live the precept;
So that you will remain so wise,
Keeping open your ears and eyes.
