Liquid Courage

It’s said that public speaking,
Is by far the most feared thing.
Most would rather die,
Than to give a speech a try.
So maybe this is after all,
Why we invented alcohol.

  1. Good poem, and it reminded me of one of Seinfeld’s jokes. He gave the same fact, that people fear giving a speech more than dying. So, at a funeral, most would rather be in the coffin than giving the eulogy. 🙂

    • As a teacher, I’m used to speaking in front of a crowd, but my pieces never sound that good read out loud anyway. 🙂 Thanks, Dennis.

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
