Nervous Quirks

There are some - that twitch their feet
And anxiously squirm - within their seat
Some bite their nails - some chew on ice
Some might fondle - an office device
Some contort their heads - and crack their necks
Making those around them - nervous wrecks

If we'd stop these quirks we do
We'd perform a noble service
To those around us that eschew
These quirks that make them nervous

    This is a cool piece, and humorous to boot. I enjoy a good, light-hearted read. Only problems is that you have "wreaks" and I think you meant "wrecks". Also loved that you used the word "eschew". Fun read; kudos! :)
