“DON”T”

If an impulse comes to say
   Some unthoughtful word today
That may drive a friend away,
   DON’T say it.
 
If you’ve heard a word of blame
    Cast upon your neighbour’s name,
That may injure his fair name,
    DON’T tell it.
 
If malicious gossip’s tongue
    Some vile slander may have flung
On the head of old or young,
    DON’T repeat it.
 
Even if the story’s true
    Think of all the harm ‘twould do:
How much better, then if you,
    DON’T rehearse it.
 
Thoughtful, kind, and helpful speech,
   ‘Tis a gift that’s given each –
This the lesson we would teach;
    DON’T abuse it.
 
“Speak not evil one of another, brethren………….”
