All mistakes are free


To be learned

Changes expected 

Respect to be earned 

Other mistakes are costly 

A reflection of folly

Some deliberate 

Which evicerate 

Not just a gaffe 

Some relent

Get on their knees 

And repent

Others persist

Don’t back down

Or desist

He intercedes on their behalf

But still


God’s way of sifting

The wheat from the chaff
