Silence, Please

Silence, please,
I hear you breathe!
Great books almighty,
I hear you read!
Your thoughts are buzzing bees!
Your stomach gurgles shake the trees!
There’s no need
To feel so freed
From quieter qualities.
If you ever dared to sneeze
We’d behead you at the knees!
I beg, I plead,
What must be done
To make you heed
This desperate plea?

What? No one else is here?
It’s only…
