Fine is a Four Letter Word
By, Donna M. Monnig
‘Hello.’ ‘I’m fine.’ That’s what you say,
When people ask how you are.
Even on the most rotten day,
When ‘fine’ is away so very far.
It’s proper etiquette and manners, too;
To smile and say we’re ‘fine.’
Because everyone has so much to do,
No one wants to hear us whine.
The truth may well be in opposition,
The meaning of ‘fine’ is often blurred.
That it’s good is our supposition,
But remember: ‘Fine’ is a four letter word!
