Better to be silent…..

Foot in mouth1

Sometimes something seems just fine

It sounds perfect in your head

Then it leaves your lips or fingers

and you wish you were dead


An old saying reads as such,

Better to be silent and thought a fool

than to speak and remove all doubt


How easy that sounds

but in practice it is so very difficult


The disconnect between mouth and mind

rules the verbiage that we vomit


So here is the dilemma

do we speak our mind

at the risk being misunderstood


No, I say we do not

we speak what is in our head

what is in our heart

what will be, will be


Just remember to wash your feet………….

  1. Yes dirty feet leave a pretty rancid taste in your mouth. I agree. Brain and mouth will disconnect at moment’s notice, and when that happens, you should have an emergency brake on your mouth. Because no good can come of it.

    A very neat poem, sir. I love the changing of lines.
