THE TONGUE

 
            WE ALL HAVE THIS TINY ORGAN
            MUCH SMALLER THAN HEART AND LUNGS
            ITS IMPORTANCE IS UNEQUALLED
            THIS APPENDAGE CALLED THE TONGUE

            ITS USES ARE VARIED AND MANY
            FROM SWALLOWING TO A KISS
            MOST OF ALL THE SPOKEN WORD
            IS SOMETHING YOU CAN’T MISS

            EDIFICATION IS ANOTHER WAY
            TO USE THIS AUDIBLE TOOL
            DEPENDING ON HOW YOU USE IT
            COULD MAKE YOU FRIEND OR FOOL

            SHARPENED IT BECOMES A WEAPON
            TO CUT AND DISECT DEEP
            SLICING, DICING, CARVING AWAY
            THE DEFENSES THAT WE KEEP

            IT IS SO EASY TO HURT
            SEE THE ANGUISH IN ONE’S EYES
            KNOWING THAT YOU’VE CAUSED PAIN
            REVELING IN THEIR DEMISE

            TIS FAR BETTER NOT TO SPEAK
            THAN DESTROY SOMEONE YOU LOVE
            AND FACE THE RISK OF JUDGEMENT
            FROM OUR HEAVENLY FATHER ABOVE
