"The first key to writing is... to write, not to think!" -Finding Forrester

Every time I speak

Out pours the angry river

A bow made out of hate

Sharp words sit in my quiver.

I mean not what I say

And say not what I mean

Such small a thing will set me off

and Now the Slate can't be set clean.

I wonder how long I have

Until I've no one left

In the ways of the double edged tongue

I'm regretably quite deft.

I mean not what I say

And say not what I mean

Please don't listen to me

When I'm letting off some steam
