Say no bull shit
To turn a new sheet
Cage your vulgar sword in its sheath

Words can make and mar is no myth
They either edify or nullify like meat
So speak good and good you’ll meet

They make life like garment, tailored to fit
Thus you’ll thrive and achieve a great feat
Till you are soaked in goodness from head to feet
Now put to use the things you’ve heard
Words can bring the good you’ve lost or never had
Make a habit of healthy speech no matter how hard

    Good advice and one which I will readily agree. Abusive and mean words never help in building good relationships. Spread the message wide and far thanks for sharing.
