Famine of descent
self righteous ~ origin of meant.
In speaking harshly
not relent ~

Starvation, e'er the words denote
and fasting ~ need to hold my note,
to eat my own, the words I choke
and digest not, their meaning's spoke!

Receptacle of worth, my mouth
does bandy on thoughts foul uncouth,
tomorrow then, that plate of words
must eat my own, others have heard!

Matthew 12:33-39
