The Fool

some days I’m less the queen
and more the fool in the corner
with a stupid hat upon my head
dancing for the entertainment of others

I keep on promising myself
tomorrow I won’t mess up
I’ll keep my words behind my tongue
and sit quietly and demure

but God did not create me a statue
he created me an exuberant child
who babbles and acts long before
my thoughts can catch up with my words
