Swollen Pride


My big mouth
earned me a black eye
When I got into a foolish fight,
in the school cafeteria,
over a disputed last piece of pie
Came home and tried to hide
behind dark sunglasses
To my parents, I uncharacteristically lied
Such is the fate I suffer now,
puffed up with swollen pride

Hi Freddie! This poem clearly shows that at a young age we are less diplomatic in what we say and do:) I hope you are keeping well. Regards // paul

Was the slice of pie worth it, that's what I want to know. :) Nice one Freddie.
