Some times it is better to keep quiet

sometimes it is better to nought
sometimes it is better not to get caught
with you mouth moving
knowing it is like a firer, because no one admire
the voice of the one who should have kept quiet.

Sometimes a voice should be silent
In the midst of any enemy
a still silent voice says many things
who can react on sweet nothings?
who knows what to say to a voice that stays?

In the present of the ones who hate me
I will watch with my eyes, I will hear with my ears,
but with my mouth I will keep still! (KA 60 years old 11/11)
