A promise 93

A promise made
Is a
Debt  unpaid

There's an oath
There's an oath set down
Before the heavens
Tell someone I will do something
And not do it
I have always “tried”
(A useless word)
To do what I said I would
And “most” of the time I did
But from now on
I will always follow through
Only death can deter me
And I will also think a little
Before I open my big mouth
And commit to something

A promise made
Is a
Debt  unpaid
Dec 31                 day 28,184
From a poem by Robert Service
