Ricochet

Look, if there’s one thing I learned from my childhood it’s………

Don’t shoot a BB from a Daisy Gun
When you’re only a foot away
From the target of a thick tree trunk
‘Cuz that baby’s sure to ricochet

~

Anyone else start singing this when they read the prompt?

. . . you don’t tug on Superman’s cape.
You don’t spit into the wind.
You don’t pull the mask off the ol’ Lone Ranger
and you don’t mess around with Jim.
                                                    ~ Jim Croce 1943-1973

Or any of these:

Don’t trust your soul to no backwoods, Southern lawyer. . .

Things like there ain’t no good in an evil hearted woman,
And I ain’t cut out to be no Jesse James,
And you don’t go writing hot checks down in Mississippi,
And there ain’t no good chain gang.

Inspired by Carry On Tuesday’s prompt #75 – “Look, if there’s one thing I’ve learned………”
