Busy mouths

Must you always use your lips?
Wont you ever restrain your mouth?
Now and then you let it flow,
Even though it wants to mellow,
You never let it low.
Therefore putting others and you  in a mess
And you say,"nevertheless,
It's my nature".
Then your nature puts you 
Into torture,
Before you know it,
Your tenure is ruined by the
Nature of your very lips....

    Disciplining the mouth is a real challenge and u have describe the feat very well in your poetry here... easy to say 'its my nature' as a solace of sorts but its just a cop out for some people who ignore their shortcomings.. great piece .. I like the honesty of it.. Charles..

    How trecherous the tongue can be! Well explained here.

    This had me chuckling because the busy mouths can cause utter destruction. On the second line it should be won't instead of wont. Phyl
