A Caution To Everybody

Poem By Ogden Nash

Consider the auk;
Becoming extinct because he forgot how to fly, and could only walk.
Consider man, who may well become extinct
Because he forgot how to walk and learned how to fly before he thinked.

that's the problem with man he thinks to much?
This is to be taken personally. There is something in each of our lives to be consider for the likeness of one, or both, of the examples given in this poem. Thanks for the caution and awareness Mr. Nash.
And the Devil reading this winked Realizing this aspect God had not thinked And matters so far linked Suggests mankind is on the brink....
Beautiful poem with great message..
Like this if you hate when you dropp a big poop and the water comes back up and splashes your butt
