Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones

A Poem by Carole

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

 

 

How obsurd!

 

Pondering,

Musing,

Wondering?

 

Where did the author of

the quote

above

get such a

preponderous

idea?

 

Did they actually

live on

this planet?

 

Perhaps this

was quoted by

an Ostrich.

 

The one with

his head in the sand.

this has me running off to google the dang thing, though my assumption would be Shakes
I like what you've done with it however. It is a rather silly notion....almost taunting the word slinger into grabbing a club...

thanks for sharing! enjoyed this

Yip. A rant but sometimes needed to be spoken at the sharp bite of wagging tongues, which can cut as deeply as any knife blade and the wounds can last a lifetime. Cheers! Thanks for the read! Rob

Amen! Who would say such a ridiculous thing and how did it become so damned popular??? Great thought-provoking piece!

Could be but either way he didn't hear the abuse or the saying. I like the poem and the flow
