Performance Anxiety

I may be no linguistic superstar Or bachelor,master, doctor of languages But i'll have you know I've performed my works on many occasions To cats, dogs, trees and miscellaneous flora All of whom showed quiet Appreciation And genuine interest In what I had to say I have shouted rhymes and Metaphors At the top of my voice To the inside of my house While every piece of furniture Sat motionless in awe Rehearsed countless conversations Loudly While riding bicycle Through quiet spectacular landscapes Magnificent mountains Stood high in silence Listening to every word Offering quiet encouragement
