I thought about you last night.
I woke up and turned on my bedroom light.
The dream I had gave me quit a fright.
And made me feel quite distraught.
I had to fight the urge to call you and wake you up.
I didn’t want to burden you with the weight of my concerns.
But to be forthright, I was fraught by what I saw yesterday.
It was quite a sight.
Let me be straight with you.
Your actions put us both in a tight spot.
And it brought out the worst in both of us.
You really ought to watch some of the things you say and do in public.
Because you really don’t need to be in the spotlight right now.
I don’t mean to sound uptight.
But you might want to tone things down a bit.
Before you get caught in compromising positions.
The last thing you need is yet another onslaught of bad publicity.
Right before you have to testify before the House Oversight Committee.
Those guys aren’t lightweights, you know.
You have to give what you’re going to say a lot of forethought.
And as much as I’d like to be your white knight, you’ll be alone at that hearing.
I don’t want you to end up looking like a deer in the headlights.
Now relax, do your best, and remember everything I taught you.
Written for the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill. Our challenge this week is to find a word that contains the letters “ght” in that order, and use it any way we’d like. And Linda said we’d get bonus points if we use three or more different words containing those letters.
