Poem: "Be careful what you say, Watch your Mouth."

Updated on January 11, 2012

Watch your mouth!

Be careful what you say!

Here is a question for you.

Do you eat snake?

If your answer in no,

and you choose to say;

Because it's nasty!

Maybe its is, to you.

Then what are you doing

walking in this here bush?

Where they just may

even remotely be!

a snake because

snakes live everywhere now

If your answer is

because you had to!

Then watch your mouth,

be careful what you say

Because that snake

just had to ...Too!

So you simply had to be there

Now you are walking through the bushes

You felt this tap on your ankles

Thought you got stuck by a fallen branch.

That was all you remembered.

Woke up three days later in the ICU!

There were all there, your family

hanging around

They really didn’t not think you‘d make it

Because that big bad snake was in town.

No matter what the doctor tried

You said the pain you could not take it

They had to put you in a medically induced coma

it was for your own good and your family

really thought that they should.

Do you remember that man you were involved

In the accident with you two weeks ago?

Because you said it was his fault

Didn’t give him time to explain, to jail he must go.

Because you suffer with hypertension,

The world is always at you mercy,

when you throw a tantrum.

You scream at your husband/wife.

The kids are so afraid, scared for their lives.

There you were, telling the police that the Driver,

that man in the other car is a moron

And that he should be taken off the road.

Now here you lie, dying of snake bites poison

you don't careless where that doctor must came from

But only now there is no anger, or no scream or shout .

Because this time it’s !

Be careful what you say,

Watch your mouth!

      After seeing that, I am thinking of breaking ranks with my fellow Independents to vote for Obama. There is one condition. He gets rid of Tim Geithner, and Brings Luther along.

      I remember in response to another months ago I believe you replied that the tongue it the most powerful, and quoted a scripture, but if I look I can find it.

      Lol it's all good.

      The tongue is like a rudder. It is small, but it steers the whole boat.

      Maybe you will get a kick out of this. It is poking fun at a man who has tamed his tongue.

      lol I am so glad that you have somehow been able to decipher that it is meant for the entire world and not any one individual, but as the great Bob Marley says

      "Who the cap fits" Take a trip to church any given day, that is if you would even go!

      So if you heard about the dangers of the copper head !

      Remember sense was made long before books, hopefully the books make you more than money. I will take the sense.Listen I remember people getting angry at their own parents for being instrumental in getting then here. Who am I?

      But curse God and DIE.

      Take care my brethren.

      LOL. I said it and now I know that you are truly one of a special kind.

      Thanks tillsontitan always a pleasure to see you. Now for you , there are just some people don't give much other people the time of day even when life presents those other people in ways that should make them think , after knowing ,and hearing from others about their repulsive way. The simplest questions sometime gets reactions no one can understand.

      So seeing this over many years and among people from many walks of life, that's means in in me somewhere , something triggered it today. My system functions like asthma. lol.

      So I conjured up this story today.

      I am sure you met not one but a few like that over time. There is always this place and person they bow to and respect, sometimes the police, sometimes someone who knew then for a long time.

      See the truth is , if you can't swim the sea should not be your favorite place .

      I can see that you are a very deep reader , should know once Charlton is your favorite.

      Well she was imaginary, what ever you sincerely think should befall her , then you have put your own and very welcome meaning.

      She should now learn to keep her mouth in proper order.

      Thanks for reading and adding a welcoming flavor , and flavorful questions.


      Ps. I know I saw the subway and , I shivered, I will get to it soon.

      Wow you told her off! This hub twists and turns yet keeps me reading and wanting to know...did she survive the snake bite? I guess more importantly did she learn to keep her mouth shut ;)

      So true, Sky and the snake that most typically gets us is the one of our own making. A kind word in the face of adversity lifts the spirit. Destructive language designed to hurt rarely helps anyone, least of all the one who says it. People may forget a kind word, but an ugly one can hurt for a long, long time. Bless you!
