Advice for the Young | A Poem by Alan Inman

Do not marry out of lust
Do not chase
after bears
Do not step in front
of moving cars,
Read a lot of books
even if you really don’t,
Know that if you need to
all you have to say I’m not
familiar
it sounds better than I don’t
know
and loads better than IDK,
Spell things out for people
Do not trust anyone
especially those in charge
Question everything
Question this
