Maxims

There are maxims for a tongue impaired
That they will twist behind the curtains.
Neither a borrower nor a lender you be.
Behind curtains you evesdrop on Adam.

Adam thinks whether to be or not to be.
Harrowing dulls edge of his husbandry.
Maxims by maximus are maximum mop
And what a twist for a tongue repaired.

It is maximus practising it on a minimus.
This one is evesdropper with no animus.
And he is just collecting a death behind
Where his words have issued previously.

(Reference is to Polonius in Shakespeare’s Hamlet)
