Hey!You twisting Tongue!
Why is that,
You utter this and that.

'coz you're boneless,
'coz you're important,surely,
'coz you're the nugget of our body.

Do you know the depth of your utterences?
They are deep and dark,like an abyss,
How to forget-they 're acrid remarks ,like that "fatal kiss".

Your terrible tongue lashes ,
Brings about complicated clashes,
And bloody blood splashes.

So,you tempting Tongue,stop creating chaos,
And begin to promote good-will,
Be the source of happiness, as well.

Happiness b'ween the two of us,
Among all of us,
Without making a big fuss.
