''Blue Light Special''

Maybe one or two aisles over
there's a special going on
if you miss the next announcement
you'll arrive and find it's gone

There's a giveaway next weekend
carry out what you can hold
but alas your arms are empty
for it seems you were not told

High's the price you pay for wisdom
in life's inconvenience store
friends' advice are like free coupons
for they've paid full price before

Closed I was to friends' suggestions
of another way to be
I was stuck paying full retail
for what I could have gotten free

I was stubborn for a while
no love nor logic could convince
then I took their words to heart
and life's been special ever since!

Offer friends your blue light specials
share your wisdom and advice
some will thank you for the discount
some will choose to pay full price...

*[For readers unfamiliar with the reference:] The term "blue light special" originates from a department store popular in certain parts of the US, which routinely announces special sales with a flashing blue light and an announcement directing customers to the appropriate aisle with the sale item.

Your "Blue Light Specials" are words of advice that you offer to your friends and family to help them get a sale in life's store of lessons. But also be open to the Blue Light Specials offered to YOU from those who've been there. Here's a word of advice about advice: Make sure you only give directions to places you've been, and only take directions from others who've been there.
