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
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! ! !
