Oops I Did It Again

Poetry

Well, I did it again
no, not leading you on
I said something stupid
what!
Surely not, but you see
my thoughts become tangled on route from my brain
and poof!
My thoughts that were roses and daffodils blooming
lo and behold
I open my mouth and out pops a toad
I do beg your pardon
these days more than not
clever thoughts in my head
emerge dressed as rot
how do I manage this astonishing feat?
I’ll teach you this…
