Can you keep a secret ?

Can you keep a secret ?

If I told you my hush-hush of heaven forbid could you keep it cloak-and-dagger left under a lid ?
But would the strange sheer surreptitious of it all make you blurt it out in a bluster or a private phone call ?
I wonder could I trust you, can you keep a secret ? If I clandestinely wrote it all out on a leaflet
Or shall I not tell you ? perhaps you’d rather not know
Well I could ponder about it maybe’s till tomorrow . 

My undisclosed is classified, totally on the QT and there’s noone else knows it well thats nobody but me . You see if I whisper my secret quietly in your ear, we would need to be alone with nobody near . Whilst mysteriously ambiguous, it is disguised and arcane and quite frankly you won’t believe it coz it sounds so insane . Yet if you swear not to reveal it, both unheard and unseen, then my secret would be our secret if you know what I mean

Still I am undecided shall I tell you or not ? Are you capable of keeping it locked under your pot ? Yes you are my friend but my secret is front-page so if it became public news it may well cause an outrage . It would be of paramount importance if somebody knew, this is my reason for not telling you . So my secret will be a secret kept locked with my key , I am sorry but I am keeping my secret with me . A secret is only a secret until it is stealthily shared then that special secret something is publically declared

Jillian! 
That was awesome! Now, you're a romantic, little vixen! You never cease to amaze me with your 300 poems a minute, and diversity. 
Wonderful!

You are that, young lady. 
I'm trying to be more diverse, also, and am currently writing a poem about some herring who have accepted their first introduction to felt, and are trying to make little fish clothes out of it...it's called Flobbin's Leg Abrasion. 
It's pretty good...in an awful type of way. Thanks!

Thanks Jill. 
My head has a mind of it's own, I can never control it...I'm thinking about trading it for some melons. 
I really like kidding with you. You always take me in stride. 
Thanks!

They're so worried about their hair! 
They like that Breck shampoo, but it's too expensive, so I just put Palmolive in a Breck bottle, and scrub their little hairdo's. Ernest has a big date tonight with a muffin. Ah, chickens.

Hi Jill...I am not a big fan of secrets because very rarely do they stay that way and one learns really fast who they can and cannot trust....lol.  There are reasons sometimes things have to stay a secret when they do harm to others or have no reason to upset the balance in life....but that rarely happens...lol  For some reason, I am the one that people come to tell me their secrets....Maybe because I am so empathetic and do keep everything told to me discreet....but that can be a hard position to be in as well...It makes you feel so much pain of others that can really affect your own moral and stress.  This is another great topic to write about.  xo Love n Hugs
