Recklessly Dumb

 

I didn’t say anything.

The words wouldn’t come.

I was the third monkey.

Recklessly dumb.

 

I kept my own counsel.

I didn’t beat the drum.

I did the calculations.

Did all the sums.

 

I lay on my bed of nails.

What havoc was to come?

Instead I spoke in riddles.

Recklessly dumb.
