They say the world is round,
Yet I often think that it is square,
So many little hurts we get
From corners here and there.
But there is one truth in life that I have found
While journeying East and West,
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those we love the best.
