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.
