There are many things to which I'm averse

   I know the Commandment says not to curse

      So to stifle my tongue

         From bad words bein' flung

            I'll fix vexations flingin' rocks at a hearse!

    I try not to make a habit out of swearing... it irritates me when people swear with no feeling and no purpose (they aren't meant to flavor your conversation... lol). But besides the point... this was funny stuff! I'm not sure if this what you intended or not, but are you implying that the person that angered you is now dead?
