Foot Securely in Mouth!

Poetry By: Mike Stevens

Why can't I just shut up?

Foot Securely in Mouth!

If getting your foot up to your mouth was possible,

I'd be eating shoe leather at this very minute

Just when I think everything's looking good,

I say something unbelievably terrible,

The kind of thing you can't believe you just said

You think you're helping, but you're making things worse

Then, the more you try to fix it,

You're only digging yourself in deeper

Why, oh why, can't I just leave things alone?
