I have spent so much of my life on my heels. I think I'd like to start walking now.

If you, your lips
Would save from slips
Five things observe with care
Of whom you speak, to whom you speak
And how and when and where

If you, your ears
Would save from jeers
These things keep mildly hid
Myself and I and mine and my
Or how I do or did
