Dear Prattlers

Dear Prattlers
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear prattlers, I beg you — stop talking.
If you don’t, I’ll escape. Watch — I’m walking.
I have pains in each joint,
As I wait for your point.
Oh my no! It’s insurance you’re hawking?

Update: June 28 is National Insurance Awareness Day.

    Frappez le bouche, s’il vous plait
    Got things to do, you’re in my way!
    Your hard-sell, it’s trying
    You know I ain’t buying
    Just so many hours in the day!
