On the Verge of Saying It

By Ndaba Sibanda

On The Verge Of Saying It

she wasn't in the mood to debate
perhaps he should have been a celibate

in her humblest of opinions he was delinquent
how could he only use his mind when it was convenient?

didn't he know he had to have complete dominion over his mind?
at all times she wondered whether his head wasn't full of wind?

if she hadn't authority over her mouth she would have said it!
but his rash actions were fast pushing her to say what was right

didn't an African proverb admonish those who didn't have brakes?
talk of dominion and control and authority over mind-and-mouth leaks!
