A unique organ

The self wounds

And self heals

 

Unlike skin

Its color matches blood

 

It twitches like a snake

Escaping harm

 

A normal organ

Like any other

Yet it takes the blame

For every harm gone or come

 

It shoots like a weapon

It rarely misses

 

It carries the weight of the word

And pushes flavour forward

 

With it, a human is a projectile

Without it, fuel is futile
