The Fear Of Public Speaking.

Updated on January 2, 2010


The Fear of Public Speaking.


Timid as a mouse,
she approached the podium,
where cats got her tongue.
It was an English Lit class
But it was the crowd 
that darkened her moment
in the spotlight.

"Haiku." she squawked out,
as the class all mumbled "Bless you,"
thinking she had sneezed.
Face flushed
Tongue tied 
she sat down
her eyes squinting 
at her unread
oriental tiers.
She failed Language Arts,
and never wrote again
though her poem was quite brilliant,
they all thought it was snot.
