Gnashing your teeth while gobbling gook
Induces a terrible state;
Bubbles of spittle froth up your words
Blending your speech and the food on your plate.
Everyone knows not to speak while chewing;
Really, it's common sense.
In spite of the need to speak out your mind,
Swallow your food first, if you'd be so kind;
Hold onto your thoughts until then.
