Just Because FML

Just because you're blond, it doesn't mean you're stupid
Just because you're old, doesn't mean you're wise
Just because you said, doesn't mean you meant it
Clearly, what's straightforward's often otherwise

Just because I hoped, didn't make it happen
Just because it's clear, doesn't make it true
Just because I checked all my preconceptions
Doesn't mean the classic ones don't fit you

Today, I had two experiences that were equal an opposite, like Newtonian laws. One involved someone who I did not judge by her/his cover, and who proved to be exactly the book that the cover implied. The other involved someone I did take at face value, and turned out to be a completely different story. So I wrote a bad poem about it. FML.
