I said too much and

Now it’s back into the slog

Will you take the kids?

Will you text me all

Day at work? Will you claim I’m


You physically? Will

You bar me from my house? Call

My father and my

Mother and read a tale of

Woe to them? My failing was

Not drink nor women,

But an unbridled

Tongue. My lesson learned, I will

Lock it up, and it

Will no more trouble

Thee. In silence is my strength.

Many words: downfall.
