AS YOU ARE

as you are
not black or white
why speculate
and alienate?
and hate and grate
gets on the nerves
come as you are
but not too far

it’s dribble drabble
yip and yap
and jibber jabber
gabber blabber
talk and squawk
and la di da
go this way that
i’ll get my hat

as you are
not wrong or right
why ruminate
and aggravate?
insert your foot
right in your mouth
come as you are
but not too far

  1. Pete, I continue to urge you to record some of your work. It sounds like it has a great beat to it and I think you should treat your audience to some sound bytes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great choice/juxtaposition of words to illustrate:  ”A closed mouth gathers no words” – Hmm…I’ll have to think about that ‘quote’!
