Write to Incite a Fight in Sight
Do I make you feel violent and angry?
If so, convince yourself to be hangry.
This face is one that’s dumb to punch.
Your hand would stop in a big crunch.
Catlike reflexes activate warrior mode.
Opponent confidence quick to erode.
Attacking kicks are caught in mid air.
Then painful leg yanking sure to impair.
Surprised attacker swallowing a defeat.
My defensive parry knocks off their feet.
Please underestimate my deft flexibility.
To taste my dodge and counter ability.
Instincts tell if you’re going left or right.
So before trying there’s a will to write.
One wrong move is my enemy’s last.
The punching arm ending up in a cast.
So before coming at me or another guy.
Shocking return strikes can quickly fly.
Remember this rhyme before you try.
Transforming into a target to my eye.
I could be wrong and you decide to begin.
Mistakenly thinking this is a battle to win.
So find out just like the others guys before.
Who woke up after a knockout to the floor.
Wondering what would I do if I was you?
I’d go find something safer instead to do.
Like listen to more of my rhymes like this.
Because a visit to the ER is a trip to miss.
You could read poems like this stuck in bed.
From taking a path nearly ending up dead.
No need to feel pain to make yourself cry.
So make the smart choice and be my ally.
