I let it slip

I had a word on the tip of my tongue

It must have slipped and fell

I fear it will probably hurt someone

For it was sharp and could cut like hell

    Lovely write Donald - well said. If only we could blame our every utterance on the slip of the tongue, then life wouldn't be so hard! But alas! being human means we have a choice of words to use - be they nice or mean.

    nice piece.though it teaches us to be careful of what we say so as not to hurt people around us.
