Advice In Abundance
Unsolicited advice free and abundant
So much of it there, its often redundant.
When I was a lad and easily impressed
I listened and nodded at the experts’ behest.
Opinions they flaunted on a scale universal
Expounding at length without forethought or rehearsal.
With style and emotion, each made a case
Of factual content there was rarely a trace.
Middle age found me as the consummate cynic
Quick to retort and given to mimic.
With the passage of time I relaxed my position
Improvised wisdom doesn’t require a logician.
In the twilight of life there is time for a chat
I now render advice at the drop of a hat.
