The Same Language

 

We speak the same language so how can it be,

that I can’t understand you, and you sure can’t follow me.

 

The words get lost, get out of place, or perhaps they twist;

whatever is the reason, the meaning’s always missed.

 

If I make any agreement, then your argument you flip;

are you dead set on giving me communication slip.

 

I try to dig out the right words for what I want to say

but my inner dictionary has got lost and in my head they stay.

 

To talk is way beyond me, I can’t keep up with the chatter

but in the world-wide scale of things, does it really matter.

 

I know our language is the same, but our interpretation’s skewed,

confusion seems to follow every utterance that’s spewed.

 

I know the problem is with me, that all my words are wrong

but it wouldn’t be so hard if you just helped these things along.

 

Instead it brings amusement; ‘Hey, isn’t she so thick!’

so I’ll communicate by keyboard, and leave my tongue to stick.
