“Patience is virtue.”

“Time mends all things.”

Yes, yes.

But John Dryden warned in 1680,

“Beware the fury of a patient man.”  

Because even the stretchiest elastic

will break when stretched too far.

Still

St. Augustine advised,

“Patience is the companion of wisdom. ”

So, I am fighting

to be wise.
