He was told that if you don’t say it,
you won’t have to apologize for it
and when he said it and had to
apologize for it, he was mockingly
told “Told you so,” but more often
than not, he told that which others
wouldn’t be so bold to have told
and which needed to be told and

himself again and has once again
been told, “Told you so,” he has
vowed to be quiet forever and ever,

warm not cold and not at all a scold,
said, “I have taken a poll and you
need to continue to be bold, but
once in a while stuff it, so I
won’t have to hear your friends
say ‘I told you so.'”
