Drop The Matter



Injure and hobble
Offend and gnash
Repair and cobble
Secrete and cache

Inflate and shrivel
Pummel and bash
Mutter and snivel
Quarrel and clash

Deceive and nobble
Constrict and slash
Devour and gobble
Stockpile and stash

Argue and quibble
Confront and gash
Puzzle and dribble
Debate and thrash

Fumble and bobble
Splinter and smash
Rotate and wobble
Tumble and splash

So drop the matter
Then see it splatter
It was mere clatter
Meant for a ratter
