     The juxtaposition of what

Opinions, are a major much or such.
Acceptance, a philosophers crutch or touch.
A catalyst could fix the lot or plot,
All hinging on the undershot of what.

Now take the wind, the huff, the fluff, the puff.
The smallest bit of moving air is enough.
It can be a thought, a wonder, a joy.
Or something just trivial, to annoy.

Perhaps your sitting in a quiet mood.
With friends, relaxing a placid attitude.
When a drift or a whiff of a verbal slur,
Raises the hair on your neck to defer.

That son of a B, so terse you will curse,
Then add some other words that are even worse.
To some, it would be, no more then a tax,
But to others, would be a whole ball of wax.

So if you insist on the apex of tact.
Be certain and sure of all of the fact.

Sy,
Now I know why you're so shy
So as not to offend the other guy
You think and think before it's said
Whatever thought is in your head
By then the conversation's changed
And all your thoughts are rearranged
Now me, I take a different stand
Foot-in-mouth at my command
Wonderful poem!
Liz

Seymour-
Words of sage well taken.
Juxmyopinion !  

Simmering in the pot,
stirred over and over again.
By the time it comes out my mouth,
better believe I meant it
and don't need to chew it again.

If the recipe calls for rising,
then it will sit until it's done.
For patience makes it sweeter
than all the 'kneading'
I might have done.

     ~Sweet
           ~Sweet
                  ~Sweet
flows the honey of regret

~*Marge*~
