Just a Few More Words





If there were enough words to express it,
We would not have been writing,
If there were enough words,
We would not have been painting,
If there were enough words
We would not have been dancing,
If there were enough words
We would not have been performing.
If there were enough words,
Could we have been eating the menu at TaChaoba's Pork Paradise?
