Famous Next Words

1 min read
I can get you a free quote today,
Not right now, but I’ve been known to make them,
Stick around and you’ll hear or read
Something pithy and profound, more importantly
Something more original than most
 
Get comfortable, I make no guarantees
For the speed and the service of what I deliver,
Sure, it’ll come, eventually,
Words blooming with truth and beauty fresh
From the fertilized ground of my mouth and mind
 
Grab paper, wield a pen, use any device
You need to record me,
A couple of words will come at any moment,
And you’ll need to be prepared for them,
Contrary to rumors about the gift, I don’t rehearse
