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.
