Golden rule (Jamaican Poem)

JAMAICA POEM: The Golden Rule
You choose to refuse to abide by a rule
Dont be a fool long side a mule, follow the Golden Rule
One rule could save your life
Put pride aside and decide what is right
Whether its at home, church, school, work or on the road
Forget about being cool obey the rule
Don't be a fool long side a mule, follow the Golden Rule
It might seem like just one rule
But trust me that one rule, you break can define the rest of your your life
Think about it, it maybe crucial
Your unwillingness to comply
Causes you to become jobless, homeless, school less , hopeless and lifeless.
All because you decided to be headless, ruthless, reckless and careless with your choices
Refuse to be a fool long side a mule, follow the Golden Rule.
