Their name in itself,
Leaves one to believe,
Knowledge will be lost,
And therefore you should grieve.

Their weight is placed strategically,
What American likes to lift even an extra gram?
Their presence stops you, out of laziness,
From saying words like damn.

“Loose lips sink ships”
And now they’ll be light as day,
Which certainly won’t help you
“Think before you say”

One is not losing wisdom from their brain,
But rather from their mouth.
A lighter jaw won’t keep unwise things in,
But rather let them out.
