Clarity Misrepresented
He can’t wait for words to say
The meaning of patience on display
Words are messengers of the intellect
Careful thoughts in place to project
Humanity waits for careless words
Sensible thoughts chopped into thirds
Ready to pounce on the right opportunity
Gossip rolls on, scattered by committee
My tongue deceived me, my faithless guide
Couldn’t wait for the intellect to decide
The words are gone, finding places to roam
Can’t pick them up and bring them back home
Oh no! too late, oh no! too late
