Shut Mind, Open Mouth

Shut Mind, Open Mouth



When he has a shut mind
When wisdom he cannot find
He then opens up his mouth
To prove himself uncouth.

The way he runs up his lip
When taken the frothy sip
It’ll throw him into the deep
Where, forever he’ll weep.

Drawl of gossip’s idle talk
Is clay feet that cannot walk
To shout or to lose temper
Afflicts like Dogs’ distemper.

Silence’s golden, so they say
This is how to live your day
Weigh an’ scan, look an’ see 
To climb the right Tree!!	


* To my Friend with a pinball head!

    Hanitra, that's what he is at times. Only that he's no longer growing up. I'd would expect his head to sort of swell a little bit.

    Can't say it enough; just a cool style you have. Wait, that sounded like Yoda lol. Another cool piece from an immensely talented fellow; kudos, my friend! :)

    Hie Archaic. We daily interact with such fellows who, with a sip, they are up-side-down! I take in moderation or a little more, but I keep my head up-side-up! Kudos! JM
