"Button your lip!" my mother used to say
I can hear her voice to this very day
Back then we were seen and not heard
You'd better not say even one more word
And if the message was still not clear
Shed reinforce with a swat to the rear
"Button you lip", my dear dad never said
He'd just stammer and his face would turn red
I'm told I was always a "mouthy" girl
Perhaps that's why I give poetry a whirl.....
