Next time,

I’ll take the my words,

somewhere else.

I’ll write them,

in someone else’s book,

read them to someone else,

I’ll make sure,

not to talk too long,

or say too much,

or take up too much time,

I’ll make sure the rules,

don’t bend,

I’ll stay away,

far away.

Never to bother you,

again.
