Putting it Bluntly (in two acts)

Published September 18, 2012 by largemargeuk

Say it once and say it right
that’s the way I prefer it
to be said.
Measure it twice to cut just once
you cannot unbutter poorly
buttered bread.
We have two ears and one mouth
for a reason –
and that’s not just cliché.
So don’t go blathering
your silly bullshit
think about what you have to say.

You’re not smart, you’re not clever
you’re not deep, you’re not wise
you’re opinions mean no more than anyone elses
you’re not a philosopher either, I see through your disguise
You intellectual credentials
all only what you say they are,
and they mean bugger all to me.
All you have is an internet connection
and perceived anonymity.
