Where My Big Mouth Got Me


I won't carry out the drama

__that comes out of my mouth

Over to the white board

Just to be wiped out


What could be undone

__of what I've said?

Each 1,000 words

Added up to an ugly picture

That has scared many

And hurt even more

But what I will say

Is nothing

For, a silent mouth

Will be thee only amends I can handle

__at this point

When the damage has sunken

So many ships


So many bridges

And swallowed

So many souls

I have heard all the pain and suffering

__I've caused

____echo in my head

Back and forth

__from ear to ear

As I flew around like Dumbo

From town to town

Just trying to flee from my living situation

And was eventually shot down

By elephant tranquilizers
