Life's Too Short

by Simon Hayes

Life's too short for arguments,
And playing silly games.
Complaining, swearing, cursing people,
Calling people names.

The world has no patience,
For insolent, arrogant fools.
Anyone who is disobedient,
Or doesn't play by the rules.

What goes around, comes around,
I'm sure that's how it goes.
Remember that when someone,
Is really getting up your nose.

'Cause life's too short for arguments,
And playing silly games.
There is no need to bicker,
And shoot everyone down in flames.

This poem is very true. Life is too short for all that stuff. The flow in this was great, it didn't have a lot of imagery, but I don't think you were expecting it too? Anyways, I agree with you 100% life is too short for all those things.

The rhyme here is perfect without sounding forced. The message you are conveying is clear and well portrayed. Your choice of words really is great. Well Done.
