Lessons

There is a place we all sadly know
built of errors as we tried to grow.

Barbs aimed at red-haired Burt,
we couldnt know how they hurt.

Watermelons we stole at night.
Didnt we see that wasnt right?

The cheating we did in junior high,
now I remember it with a sigh.

The fun we made of old Miss Rose
cursed alas with an oversized nose.

Ah, yes, all others were fair game
but we were faultless, free of blame.

But time and age lessons will teach
and civility comes within ones reach.

Dwell not on that place we sadly know
it was part of how we learned to grow.
