HAVE YOU
EVER MET  TROUBLE?


By Josie Whitehead

Have You Ever Met Trouble

?

Have you ever met Trouble?

     You haven’t?  You will.

He travels in silence

     And brings no goodwill.

 

He looks for a target –

    I hope it’s not you!

So move away quickly

    Whatever you do.

 

Avoid trouble-makers;

    Don’t answer them back.

They’re working for Trouble;

     Don’t let them attack.

 

Don’t argue, don’t dither;

     Don’t think you can win.

For Trouble’s a monster

     Who wears a big grin.

 

Make a good group of friends

     Who’re kind-hearted and true:

And when Trouble comes looking,

     He won't pick on you!
