The Rat Only Comes When You Don’t Have A Stick To Kill It.

A stitch in time saves nine.
Strike whilst the iron is hot.

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, rage
Against the dying of the day, put

Your eggs in one basket,
Scrambled, and

When you rattle a snake expect a bite.

Enough.
Let sleeping dogs lie.

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush, two
Peas in a pod –

Tomorrow never comes.
Diamonds are forever.

Nations rise and fall on words, and
We can afford to speak good,

-Ak-

Can’t you take a joke?
I was being sarcastic,

Yeah.

I ‘ain’t paying a penny for your thoughts.
Even a farthing.

I’m not laughing with you,
Laughing at others,

I am not.

Here,
Say something kind.

A stitch in time saves nine.
