It is quite amazing what one word will do
When I heard that word uttered it was then I knew
A poem of sorts would have to be written in honour of that word
This whole concept made sense to me – to you it may seem absurd
But I tell you truly I care not how you may react
Because I’m bent on writing this poem – now that’s a simple fact
I’m not being at all tetchy although it may seem that way
It’s just how I am wording this poem in what I’m trying to say
Sometimes it’s quite difficult to phrase lines in such a way they don’t offend
I will try and get it right before I reach the end
Conversation sure has a way of getting people involved
In the general happenings of a particular day or how wars might be resolved
There are two topics I shy away from – people’s politics and their religion
For no matter how much you debate on them – you will never change their decision
Also I will never get involved with a drunk at a public bar
Unless that is he makes his way out and attempts to drive his car.
Returning to the task in hand – that attempt a poem to compose
That word I heard uttered – Honestly I really can’t disclose.
