Poem: Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover

Don’t judge a book by its cover

lest you miss chapter three

where all things deep and mysterious


it’s clear

by chapters seven through eleven

that clarity will come later,

you must refrain from judging too soon,

you thought you knew; it’s true,

the cover misled your view,

yet the final pages

reveal the notions you formed
before reading page one

were woefully wrong,

you judged too soon

before you knew

the truth behind the cover.
