#259: January 7, 2007

For God's sake, just shut up a minute, please!
I'll pay you for just half a moment's peace!
Were I to get down on my hands and knees
and beg, would all this damned yammering cease?

What can I do to make the quiet come?
I'll promise anything, just name your price.
These hours of screaming fight have left me dumb
and now I want my head crushed in a vise.

It seems to me that once we got along;
we spoke together in hushed, even tones.
Once we were friends--correct me if I'm wrong--
and didn't want to break each others bones.

But that was long ago, and far away;
for now, let's both just hush--what do you say?
