I wrote this cause its raining again

It’s raining. . . . again.

As I set at the key board not saying a word.
I feel like a muted, silly old . . . nerd.

For in the past, it’s oft been said:
I talk too much. Be quiet instead.

It’s also been mentioned as I’ve voiced my views.
If you’ve too much to say, folks won’t listen to you.

It goes in one ear and then out the other.
Folks don’t filter it. . . .  . No time to bother.

So if you run a Q-tip deep down in your head.
Comes out a mysterious yellowish-orange or red.

That just may be a remnant of my being around.
My words passed your head as they fell to the ground.

But don’t be mislead by what you’ve read.
This good advice didn’t lodge in my head. :o)

    It seems based on the comments that more people are listening than you thought. Keep writing my friend. Your Muse might impart a Muse-inkle.

    Old Buck, Thank you for voicing in beautiful rhyme what I believe we all feel sometimes, especially talking to our children. I hope when the orange red falls from their ears they will remember and appreciate.

    Your muse likes to come out and play, when it rains. :) Sometimes mine does too, except my thoughts usually caress the page with romance. Love. Playful passion. Keep talking when it rains, because you create cute moments like this, when you do. :) Brandy

    nice powerful poem pal. thanks for recent comments old buck. nevermind when ehat you say goes in one ear out the other. it's how u know yourself that counts. it's not what one reads but only that one can read between the lines and the writing on the wall. from one blood and guts guy to another. enjoy summer.
