Unruly tongue
Always ready
To hurt someone
Unruly tongue
Careless and dumb
Deadly with devilish venom
Striking suddenly to numb
Subtle and belittling it comes
To steal your life and fun
Throw you into a tailspin
An emotional demise within
The unruly tongue tantalizes
Seeks to get and self-actualizes
Others it speedily despises
As it beguiles and disguises
Itself in tasty tender verbiage
Heartless beneath as garbage
Decaying and corrupting
Infesting and polluting
Portraying and purporting
Purity distorting and diluting
The unruly tongue likes refuting
Any confrontation that is hurting
Seeking to harness and rule
Unruly tongues think they're cool
Yet their words stink like a stool
Though they perch on a pedestal
Proud as a peacock impenetrable
Identify their errors, they're unable
Mentally and emotionally unstable
Hurt people consistently hurt people
Within they're bruised and feeble
Living in a dreadful depth of denial
By the dearth of honesty they spiral
Their internal infection worse than viral
Enslaved to their insecurity and instability
They quickly place the focus outwardly
Dissecting, dismantling, and dominating others
It doesn't matter if they're sisters and brothers
If the unruly tongue had its own druthers
It would continue to be foul and smother
Its own beloved father and mother
Because deep within there is poison
Rage and bitterness like a sour lemon
They need a new outlook and horizon
Their perspective and perception
Needs an alteration and transformation
Their restless soul needs to be whole
Improving their manners is the goal
In a school of etiquette they must enroll.
