The Last Word


By John L. Malone

You always want the last word.
Do you ever look at yourself in the mirror, question yourself?
You like things open and shut. In neat little packages.
Even when we can’t see you, we hear you.
I’ll give you this. You go about your work quietly, not like your loud, foot-stomping cousins,
But you could loosen up, give others a go.
I know in some countries you go by a different name,
But a rose by any other name is still a rose
And a full stop by any other term is still a full stop.
