PAD Challenge day 1. Write a 'foolish' poem.
Live in the moment but do not forget
To prepare for the moments that have not happened yet!
(this reminds me, I need to stock up on candles after last week's three power-outage nights)
We do well to live in the moment
But are foolish to forget
The choice that takes but a moment to make
Is far from over yet
Wise is the one who considers
After the short-lived glee
Of instant gratification
What the end result will be

The prudent sees danger and hides himself,
but the simple go on and suffer for it.
