Speech or no Speech

Extremely sensitive have we become
Every remark we hereby scrutinize
Hidden meaning we then discover
and these slowly begin to antagonize

Perhaps the silence really is the answer
but then body language we interpret
a simple gesture, but volumes written
that we read into and then fret

Speech might be an amazing trait, but
more problems it creates than solves
Stupid bipeds we have become
to a more primitive form evolved

The End
