The words slashed, cutting deep.
Blunt as a hammer.
The knife so cleverly twisted
as to render the wielder innocent.
Indeed, they are righteous
Capitulation is the proof.
Dry mouthed, wet eyed
Inability is no defence
Deep cuts bare
Hammer blows hurt
Oh, the incisions and bruises
But beneath the pain fester.
Bandaged in cruel words
Embalming in wretchedness
Buried in doubt, A half-life lives
Confused suppression exists
The meagre are vanquished
A clever tongue and wicked mind
Can drive a life to destruction
A poetic tongue and compassionate mind
Can guide a life towards fulfilment
Which carries more kudos?
