I wanted to say what I knew I should not.
So, I tried to say what sounded better.
However, I failed miserably. Oh fretter!
I spoke carefully at the start,
My composure to maintain
But my tongue began speaking from my heart
Unfortunately with much distain.
So, what I thought to say, I knew I should not
And what I wanted to say, I did not.
But what, in fact, I said was a “do not.”
Oh my, what a dilemma!
My mouth wasn’t moving, but a noise could be heard.
Even without me saying a word!
From deep in my throat
Came a sound like a goat.
And by George, my anger was a float
On the air of dismay and disbelief it flew
Out of my throat like a wild kangaroo.
Noises, angry noises continued coming out
Even though my hand was covering my mouth.
Horrified was I at what was occurring
I even tried to mimic a cat a -purring.
Faces of terror stared back at me
As my mouth kept rumbling incessantly.
When will it end and silence return?
When indeed will I finally learn?
To speak ones mind is often a mistake.
Especially when anger erupts like a quake.
