On Second Thoughts

First thoughts, like thoroughbreds
Oftentimes race to untoward conclusions
Unabetted by serious cogitation
By putting trophy logic
Above all other considerations
Whereas contrariwise
Second thoughts prosper
Free of the greed for speed
And meander less-frequented
Flightpaths to glory
Like fancy-footed fillies
Too young for the restrictive
Harness of serious racing.
