I
Beware of chatter
full of clatter
as a prattler
on a platter

II
Beware of matter
full of chatter
as a trapper
in a litter

III
Beware of chatter
full of tatter
in a wrapper
as a shatter

IV
Beware of clapper
full of glitter
as a trigger
for a capper

V
Beware of lather
full of patter
as a plotter
in a totter.
