An Ode to the Roof of My Mouth Which is now in Pain because My Lunch was too Hot

I’m very, very sorry. I completely take the blame.

I’m just too darn impatient and I don’t respect the flame.

I could have let lunch cool. I should have you might say.

I wasn’t in a hurry. And now I’m not okay.

You’d think I’d learn my lesson. Cuz’ I say this every time.

I promised that I’d slow down, to prevent this thermal crime.

Yet I am so very weak-willed, I have no self control.

When food is placed before me be it spoon or plate or bowl,

I cannot help but scarf it. I shove it in my face.

Again I have now burned you, my head hangs in disgrace.

I hope you can forgive me and this mornings circumstance.

I promise to do better, please just give me one more chance.
