Wisdom (Prompt: On the Other Hand)

Maybe
the grass is greener on the other side
and you can judge a book by its cover
and the first restaurant you see may be the best
and it’s ok to let the sun catch you crying
and pride doesn’t always go before a fall
and love is not all you need
and the good don’t always die young
and the Lord doesn’t help those who help themselves
and the free market system isn’t best
and the early bird doesn’t get the worm
and he who hesitates is not lost

but on the other hand

I have only four fingers
because of a
freak industrial accident
which
for all my wisdom

I could not foresee
nor prevent.
