Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

In Honor of All the Jerks You Ever Knew

                         People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
                                      Love them anyway.
                                         Kent M Keith
                              The Paradoxical Commandments

Some people are just jerks

You can try be logical with these folks

Good luck with that

You can try being reasonable too

Dead end

You can try being generous

and giving
and just plain saintly
And most of them 
are still going to be jerks

so you can
become a jerk as well

 just love them the way they are
and remember

and that's poetiquejustis 

 If you love only those who love you, 
what good is that? 
Even scoundrels do that much.
Matthew 5:46
