I get tired

of having to explain myself

every time

I say something stupid

and stick my foot

in my mouth.


but I do it


every time.


I rectify the situation

I find some other 

stupid thing to say


It’s a viscous cycle

I can’t seem to escape


Perhaps it’s fate

perhaps it’s destiny

but whatever the case

it really does suck.




Author's Notes/Comments: 

I continually suffer from foot in mouth disease.  I've been advised that the only cure is the shut up and remain silent.

My foot has been stuck in my mouth and so I cannot speak out loud.

Leg and hips kinda hurt too, being in this awkward position.

What did Two Marks write?  It is better to remain silent and appear a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
