Reflex

You can comment on and get it wrong,
but comment on.

Some can talk a storm, a gale force nine on
anything we post and there’s time for you to
comment too,

some keep schtum, keep mum’s the word
and say nothing of what seems absurd
and some go on their way with nothing on
their minds to say.

I bite my tongue
writing can be so
much fun, but if fate
decrees then by degrees
I find an angle
and idle in the corner.
