You Can Say That Again

( Idiom poetry )

A dime a dozen is a decent rate.
A blessing in disguise is what it is,
To beat around the bush you’ll be too late.

A better-late-than-never attitude
Might save a tooth than bite the bullet hard.
But break a leg, you’ll wind up being sued.

Let’s just call it a day and say we did.
And cut some slack to everyone you know,
Instead of cutting corners like a kid.

It’s easy does it, if you care to know,
To run so fast, things will get out of hand.
So get your act together and go slow.

To make a story short, no pain no gain,
When on the ball & pulling someone's leg.
Then pull yourself together by the reins.

Come on let’s go back to the drawing board.
Let someone off the hook who missed the boat
And we’ll be richer for the points we scored!

To wrap my head around all that we’ve done.
It isn’t rocket science if I say,
Time flies for us when we’re both having fun!
