Talking the Walk



Everyone at work used to say

You were good at talking the talk

I did not realise this

As I was too distracted

Listening to you talking

Rather than watching you



And as I walked faster

Alongside you talking

I forgot where I was going

And I fell down a hole

You did not see me or follow

But I could still hear you

I'm wondering whether there should be a walk instead of a talk in line 2?

I love the poem Katy - it's a bit Bridget Jones - I love the vulnerability - you capture it perfectly.

Man made trap
poetry on high
light shines bright
talk shuts up.

Terrific - clever, fast and funny, with some sharp social commentary biting through.
