Never say to someone who's pessimistic and depressed
"You look good today in that dress"
Because they will think you meant
That without it they look horrible.
Never say to someone who's just moved to somewhere new
That this place sucks
Because they will agree wholeheartedly
And never let it go.
Never say to someone who's very angry
To just calm down
Because to calm down they need to strangle and hit and pinch and poke
And their victim will be you.
Never say to someone who's just recited a poem
Just how badly the words did flow
Because they just might become very cross
And inform you it was written by Robert Frost.
Never say to someone who's sick of doing work
That they're lazy and useless and don't get anything done
Because they will blow up in your face, or else just give up
And you will then be forever branded by them as a jerk.
Review and let me know what you think!
