They say I mumble.
They can’t hear me when
I speak my mind
Every time, the same

Blank faces stare back
At me, one, two, three
Times I have to say
It again, pretend
That it doesn’t sting

My mouth doesn’t hang
Off its hinge like a door
Letting idle words
Spill out like the air
heads who tell me I
Am too quiet to
Contribute something-

-meaningful to the
Stimuli they spew
At me, as if I
Am unaware of
Their so evident
Ignorance, simply
Because I mumble
