A Word In

It’s not my fault

That she won’t stop

Talking.

My side of the family has never been a

Chatterbox.

My papa says nary a word.

My mama can hardly be called

Garrulous.

It is your relations who are incessantly

Loquacious.

With them one cannot get a word in sideways.

A dinner lasts three weeks.

A quarrel, half a century.

So do not come to me

Complaining

About Junior’s wordiness.

“You should listen to yourself,” you say?

Shifting blame is something

Else

Your whole family does

Pretty much endlessly.

  1. So very real, isn’t it? Indeed, it seems to be a genetic trait.
    Yet, I worked with a guy who spoke Italian. He was normal until on the phone with someone in Italy. Then his character changed, his arms waved as the call went on and on. Another fun one, Na’ama.
