If You Were To Eat Your Words


If you were to eat your words how would they taste 
would you swallow them slowly, without haste ?

If you were to nibble on the letters of your poem 
would they satisfy your soul like a sweet Shalom ?

If you were to feast on a whole entire page of nouns  
would you turn into a smile, or a big upturned frown

If words were edible then I'd make malice avoidable 
and I would never write anything mean or unlovable 

If you and I were sensitive poets we'd write real good 
so everything we'd eat  would taste like jello not wood 

is it understood ?

I like these fun ones. Hope you had as much fun writing it as I had reading it. Ciao, Gershon

A word to the wise. Being nasty leads nowhere. Well writ. Hugs.

"If you were to feast on a whole entire page of nouns would you turn into a smile, or a big upturned frown" - I think it would be a big upturned frown. I love adjectives and adverbs the best! Well done my friend!
