SOFT PROFANITIES
(10/30/18)


maybe
age
is the cause

but the verbal
histrionics
of the past
reflect a bit
ridiculous

juvenile

getting that
upset
about anything
seems such
a waste
of energy

evaluate
the facts

consider
the options

then act

speak only
if absolutely
necessary

then
in a low

calm voice

since
most threats

most promises

are better
delivered
in a whisper
