In Which I Am Sick Of Listening To Myself

Some vocal chords, a throat, a head, each set
A little diff'rent, so our voices come
To sound just as they do. And when we get
To spend a day a-list'ning, they sound dumb
To us who bear them. Podcast marathons
Are exercises in humility.
Misspeakings, grunts, just sounding like morons,
Or losing track of character, ah me.
That anyone would volunteer to hear
What now results, is stunning. How I hate
The way I sound! And no, it's not my gear
(A Blue Snowflake is good, and, just of late,
I've made myself a pop filter); oh no!
Humiliated pride's what runs the show.
