Everyday Fears: Saying Something Stupid

Sometimes the fear comes a little too late.

You walk outside, full knowing
That you’ve done it once again:
Established yourself firmly as
The stupidest of men

If only you could stop yourself
Before the moment’s here:
For ‘stupid’ scars an ego,
But destroys a man’s
Career
