Sound Off

written by: Steve Green



Never confuse shyness
with a lack of self-confidence…

In fact those of us who value silence
over bloviating displays of arrogance
choose not to join the chorus of ignorance
that these days serves as currency
in a bankrupt world where volume
is valued over substance…

So take a verbiage time out …

Stop your yapping
for a fleeting moment
of glorious quietness…

You may actually hear
those who stealthily roll
with thoughtful contemplation
muttering to themselves
under their collective breathes
what an obnoxious ass you are
