Under Do It

A life spoken of too much locks the museum door behind it. If you write it all down eyeballs will skate over the rambling litter. Many claim to have a book in them one worth telling to all. Nod and agree, then flee. A life underdone is best, not too hard a boiled egg - softly does it. Better to compose pure fiction secretly weaving some truth of you within. Only the subdued liar, the retrained boaster can fake it all the way to the end and make you want to read on. Under do it if you want to be noticed, over do it and you are undone!
