This modern day doth promote looseness of lips
Easily speaking with nary a thought,
Then later in regret we come to grips
With what is proper as we had been taught.
A click of send with no recall,
Forever unleashed upon our world,
Try as we might we can never stall
The insults and hurt that we have hurled.
Nay, neither you nor I are immune;
We’re feeble and frail in our judgement moral.
Apologizing and vowing a different tune,
We beg forgiveness both written and oral.
Would it not have been best to have bitten our tongue
Forgoing the backlash that has now begun.
