Seriously…I had this dream last night????
I had a dream last night that really garnered my attention.
Several of my friends came by to do an intervention.
One began by saying I was aggravating them.
The next one rolled her eyes and said a loud, “Amen.”
The third friend very bluntly said I talked incessantly.
Afternoons went by, and no one talked but me.
I told story after story that bored them all to death.
I could rattle ten off, and never take a breath.
My friends were all concerned about the way that I embellish,
When I talk about the old times I so obviously relish.
All this intervening lasted way too long.
I didn’t have a chance to say I knew I’d done them wrong.
As only luck would have it we were lunching the next day.
I told them they must give me time so I could have my say.
I began to talk and talk and then before I knew it.
I looked around the table and thought, boy I really blew it.
Then I realized it doesn’t matter anyway.
It was just a dream. My tales will live another day.
Have I told you about the time, and I remember when?
If I’ve told you once, I must tell you all again.
So if you should decide you want to plan my intervention,
And you wish that I would have just a little comprehension,
Of the point you’re trying to make, you should wait until daybreak.
I only talk too much when I’m awake.
