Never Wrestle With a Pig

 

Never Wrestle With a Pig

 

By Elton Camp

 

“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig, you get dirty; and besides, the pig likes it.” - George Bernard Shaw

 

 

If you become the victim of personal attack

There is usually little point in fighting back

 

If it’s untrue, the attacker is only a swine

Who’ll be encouraged to continue to malign

 

React when your supposed faults he’ll mention

And he’s delighted since he got your attention

 

Try to respond and no matter what you do

Some of the pig’s dirt will rub off on you

 

Such a slanderer we all should abhor

And say nothing--it’s best just to ignore
