    razor tongue

    U use your tongue like a surgically tempered sword to
    Vanquish your enemies into emotional oblivion
    Cutting deep into the bone severing arms legs and testicles
    And any fool that happens to be in your path shall suffer total annihilation of mind and spirit
    For no man can even begin to do battle in the arena of words for this is
    Where you rule supreme but if any man should dare to fight in this arena
    He must first cloak himself in an armor of estrogen just to qualify and forsake the wisdom of silence
    So don’t mistake my silence for a fools confirmation of your righteous indignation
    My only two options were to either put on a suit of ***** in an attempt to cut and slash back
    or act like the fool you believe me to be and knock you the f_ _k out
    So if you catch me smiling as you cut me its because I am fantasizing about my second option
    But to accept either of these choices leaves me smelling of *****
    So I will do what any other soldier would do if he found himself in battle without a weapon(Retreat).
    but make no mistake I am wounded.
    There are surgeons that can fix my wounds and restore me to health
    And once Humpty Dumpty is put back together again he will probably choose to remain in the intensive care of the surgeons who healed him.

    yes

    Though this piece had me laughin, it is deep. I get that this is to the woman (women) in your life that attempt to cut at you with words and try to control and belittle you. And this must be your explanation of silence so that you won't one day have to knock her (them) the **** out!

    lovin this piece.

    razor tongue

    This verse was simply my illumination of a battlefield as I see it. A battlefield that the most aggressive soldiers often do not realize exist, and once all their foes have been vanquished they search for a cause of death not realizing the proficiency of their weapon.
