If I Know This Much….

I was walking past a school today

They had their windows open.

And

From above my head

I heard the teacher talking

Louder

Than the gentle roar of jabbering children.

And the teacher asked

“Why are you all talking?!”

Immediately I thought

Because we have something to say!

I chuckled at my ever so quick wit

And wanted so badly to yell that out as I kept walking.

It would have made the kids laugh.

And the teacher cringe.

It would have been disrespectful

And simply,

Rude.

So I bid my thoughts silent.

Because

Sometimes

You just don’t say what’s in your head.

Because it doesn’t serve a good purpose.
