I find my teeth do work better in my mouth, not on the floor…


Watch what you say in your inimitable way,

Don’t speak too loudly or flat out you will lay,

Only when you do speak to your god and you pray,

Then and only then can you speak up and say nay…


Unless of course you wish to speak in the positive,

Then you will have to say something that is causative,

You will then be known for something more proactive,

Then you can honestly say that you may be just a bit more attractive…


If said with too much fervor,

Your opinion as such may need a life preserver,

Thrown to the waves, to be eaten by the fish,

No one will stay too watch, there will be no observer…


Specifically herein I do mean very little,

Just my mind spouting sentences, in old age it becoming quite brittle,

Out of my mouth when I do spout you may see some spittle,

I have very little to say that means much so I remain yours quite noncommittal…
