Faux Pas: ~mistaking a foe for a fox and hoping for a pass (grace). For more chuckles see ~Social Blunders, past and present. Also, synonyms that rhyme with ‘riot in a teacup.’ Or: “Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away.”
Life lesson learned for this or any day
When entangled in a faux pas, silence your say.
Attempted apologies/explanations to stay
surely will worsen it all anyway.
You know a firestorm is coming astray
Remove yourself and get out of the way.
Queen of Hearts ordered, “Off with the head!”

Queen of Hearts ten meters tall.
Life lesson well learned, as I recall.

and sure to see more to my chagrin).
Ain’t life funny? Meaning peculiar, not Ha Ha.
When does it end? At the final hurrah!
