Wednesday Wiseness: But don’t give me leftovers

Hand-me-down a tattered shirt, but don’t give me clothed ego

Hand-me-down a game of scrabble, but don’t give me a black vs. white checkers board

Hand-me-down a stuffed toy, but don’t give me frail humanity

Hand-me-down a soothing song, but don’t give me a tune gone wrong

Hand-me-down a cautious word, but don’t give me a fickle sigh

Hand-me-down a solemn tear, but don’t give me an envious smirk

Hand-me-down a dream, but don’t give me an unfinished memory

Hand-me-down a recipe for love, but don’t give me a leftover heart
