when confronted with an element of danger for 3WW

he taught me much

like when confronted

with an element of danger

sit with your back to the wall

never toward it

use your eyes well

look over your shoulder

only if necessary

and above all

there’s a time to banter

and a time to shut up

know the difference

enjoy your life

but remain confident and aware

it’s your duty to yourself

and to those who love you
