Throw A Little Dirt
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

There is an old, old saying.
For eons it's been around.
'When you throw a little dirt,
you lose a little ground.'

If indeed it's true,
and I believe it with all my soul,
You must be in over your head,
for you've dug yourself into a hole.

It's for sure, you'll get it back,
when others do as you have done.
They'll eventually throw it back
and then you will have some.

Better to sweep it out the door
or sweep it under the rug.
It may just land on your head,
in the hole that you dug.

Unless it lands on top of you
and then the story's through.
You will be buried under
the same dirt that you threw.

Okay, that does it....I'm going to have to give up the owl to you pretty soon if you keep coming up with all these words of wisdom
Beautiful baby picture by the way

I wholeheartedly agree, Marge! "Sweep it out the door, or sweep it under the rug"--I couldn't have said it better!

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
-Oliver Wendell Holmes

Marge,
Cute enjoyed the poem.
I don't know why but I
thought you were going
to talk about another kind of
dirt. LOL

Hey, Marge, what happened to your cute little baby picture?! It's not showing, at least on my computer.
