Written for The Daily Spur: https://thedailyspur.wordpress.com/2020/12/10/tongue/
Is it long and sticky or
just short and real light red?
Does it have a little bump
and hang out of your head?
Is it wet and looking for
something to that tastes real good?
Do you have to tell your tongue
you aren’t in the mood?
The mind and body can relate
but the tongue’s a life its own
it thinks it owns the whole body
but doesn’t have a bone.
So stick it back in to your mouth
and close your lips up tight
Its gross to see you slobber
and spit throughout the night.
