I Dare Not ..... [ SHORT; wierd? HUMOUR/HUMOR; life; personal]

I dare not pick my nose in public, lest I set a bad example;
I dare not name women I think of, lest on-my-wife's-heart I trample;
I dare not miss brushing my teeth once a day, 'Bless My Soul! ',
lest I tempt 'Old Tooth Decay' to make another hole;
I dare not shoplift stuff from a store, as that would be naughty;
I dare not praise my poem too much, as that some would think haughty;
I dare not kill myself right away; I shall wait a while,
though the thought of the peace it may bring, brings to me a smile.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i composed this in my 'head', then repeated it several times before getting out of bed. my wife had slept downstairs last night; i guess sometimes i give her a fright. so now i write it first [a 'first'] directly into computer. later i'll see if i can muster some behaviour/behavior with which to suit her.
she JUST called me from her cell phone to my cell phone. i'd better go down and give her a chance to apologize to me!

p.s. PH does not accept the spelling 'humour' in the topic field; it must be 'humor', as it should be of course! ! !

    this made me chuckle! the do nots of society that if broken may land you in hot water. If not hot water then at least win you the title rejector of hegemony.

    Hey Brii I am not surprised your good lady has taken herself down below
    If all you are doing is making up rhymes
    I think she should tell you to go.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
