Shut the front door…

I need to learn how to stop swearing.
It’s quite important I do.
I have a babe
of influenceable age,
whose first words ought not to be blue.

I need to come up with some new words.
To replace the obvious few.
Try fudge instead?
Perhaps prat, or poo head?
But I’m not even sure that will do.

I like to speak with some passion.
With details that all understand.
I find it too hard…
I’m just not The Bard.
Not swearing might make me feel bland.

I’m afraid I’ve got a bad a habit,
that is terribly hard to undo.
Such versatile words –
adjectives or verbs,
can even be used as nouns too.

So forgive me as I test out new vocab.
Bear with me, I might be a bore.
I’ll forget to say fudge,
but try not to judge
when I tell you to shut the front door.
