Full Of It – A Quadrille

Full Of It

 
Sometimes you are
such a bumbling fool
How can you be
so insensitive?
The proverbial foot
has taken up permanent
residence in your mouth
where words
are created in chaos
and spewed outward
Full of crap
like a broken sewage pipe
What a bum!

    I always say I have a weight problem because I’ve eaten so many words, so I identify with the foot in the mouth!
