Forked Tongue (not mine)

Featured

I am hungry
what do I do?
Cook my food
and relish my meal
or sit watch others enjoy?

I wanna dance
my feet are tapping
Can I be happy
just looking at the crowd
go hyper mad and wild?

Words in my mind
run haywire
Do I pen them down
or just be content
to read what others write?

I‘ve decided!!!
I’ll wear my shoes
and go for a walk
Not sit near the window
while the joggers pass me by

My poem was in response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Morton’s Fork.”:

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

What is Morton’s Fork?  Read here
Morton’s Fork is a logical dilemma in which a person faces two equally bad options.
Between devil and the deep sea.

But Reading vs Writing…aren’t both these supposed to be equally good options??
