    Never Say Never

    With the end of April, a time dedicated to poetry, but in this year too full of tragedy, perhaps one last poem with a touch of humor is a helpful way to close out the month.

    Never Say Never 

                And other lines worthy of Yogi Berra

    A chain is only as strong as – its missing link

    All that glitters – is a fool and his money

    A watched pot is – where the heart is

    An ounce of prevention – saves nine

    Cleanliness is – the best medicine

    A friend in need is – a penny saved

    Two wrongs don’t make – a good turn

    Birds of a feather – are two in the bush

    A miss is as good as – kissing your sister

    Leave well enough – where angels fear to tread

    Ignorance is the root of all evil – and money is bliss

    Good things come to those – who help themselves

    Life is short – and the good die young

    Rules were made – to flock together

    The best things in life – must come down

    There’s no fool like – the eye of the beholder

    When the cat’s away – the early bird gets the worm 

    There’s no time like – having your cake and eating it too 

    When the going gets tough – no news is good news

    The grass is always greener – on the road to hell

    Where there’s a will – it might be Shakespeare

    Eat, drink and be merry – is well enough

    Better safe – than never

    Better late – than sorry

    Leave well enough – in one basket 

    A little knowledge – also killed the cat

    Money doesn’t grow – in love and war

    Actions speak louder than – good intentions

    Half a loaf is better than – catching the worm

    The end justifies – the mother of invention

    If it ain’t broke – it’s a bird in the hand

    Out of sight is – a dangerous thing

    Easy come – soon parted

    And great minds – think

  • April Fools

    Today is April 1, celebrated day for pranks, but it is also the beginning of poetry month. April was chosen perhaps to honor T.S. Eliot, whose line from The Waste Land begins: “April is the cruelest…

The Last Word
