if words were mine to command

if words followed my command
i would never demand
time to swallow my pride
but rapidly fire a fitting reply

if words followed my command
conversation would not lack
that fizz and that knack
to create an impression

my foot would stay down
and not wind its way around
towards my wide open mouth
in order to confound
and take my pride down south!

Oh! if only words followed my command
i would write fine prose
and verse would bloom
like a budding rose

then my dear reader
you would stay here
and not fritter away
in search of better wordleaders
