I Must Stop Swearing - Poem by VICTORIA GEORGE

I wish I could stop swearing
It really is a vice
For people with good hearing
It isn’t very nice

I bought a book on e-Bay
Entitled ‘Help Yourself’
I read it in just one long day
Now it’s gathering dust on the shelf

This constant profanity flow..
It turns the air navy blue
If I dropp some-thing on my toe
‘Dear me’ somehow just won’t do

I feel a lot better now
I know what is causing these fits
I read about it in ‘Now’
I’ve got a disease called Tourettes!

    Swearing is just so much fun, but there not really words most people want to hear. (Report) Reply
