“I do” is up there in the English language
with the most powerful of three letter terms.
Alongside “die” and sexuality slurs.
You know the ones that carry such meaning
When spoken in hastened breath.
There’s one for you – “hastened breath,”
I wonder is that the opposite of bated breath?
When’s the last time I said “die”
or “I do” in my workspace?
But give me another letter and I’ll make
The f-word. And that features frequently.
