Take A Number

(Self Control)

Smiling faces, I have seen a few
Biting my back with words untrue…
Shot calling, big balling, what next
I am still surviving as you continue to test.
Say you’re hopping mad, how unfortunate;
My blood should be boiling now, but instead
I remain as cool as a cucumber… Holding up my head
You still taunt and agitate wanting to rumble,
I hope that is not all you have, 
for I would hate to see you tumble.
Nor, have I desire to fumble; 
I am trying to remain humble…
You see I have my eye on the prize
This should come to you as no surprise.
Still want a piece of me, then friend take a number…
(Sometimes a little self-restraint can go a long way, yes)

    Hi Adell, I got the number 65. LOL..Kidding, I like the way you expressed self control. I don't think that's easy for me. Once my blood boils, ...Look out! :) Anyways, I enjoyed this, and I feel bad, for anyone needing to take a real number. :) Linda
