My Misspeak

This is a LESSON on something that must LESSEN.

My Misspeak
(Limericks in Force for Speech Most Coarse)

It’s time for a self-made critique,
Right after a profane blue streak.
I hope no one heard
That decadent word,
When then without thought I did speak.

I should have just snapped shut my beak
And uttered not one single squeak.
I knew afterward,
My conscience was spurred,
For my censorship had sprung a leak.

Perhaps I will sound like a freak,
But language most foul seems to reek.
I’ve always preferred
To leave it unheard,
But now I my own tongue must tweak.
