She realized words was all she had

Words small like ant

Big like pococurante

Pragmatic

Idiosyncratic

What you think of that?

At my job they say I move slow

Watch how quick my acerbic tongue lashes you

I won’t cuss you

But verbally mince you

Then plate you

And serve you up

Lassitude

Attitude

Vicissitudes

What you got to say?

Your mind is puerile

Lost in my verbal maze

Amazing

You want a word battle

I slay you

With verbs and adverbs

You never even heard

So you cut me with your eyes

And spit profanity

With an acrimonious tone

But I…

Have only words

And with a click of my tongue

Have you dangling like a modifier

Can’t extinguish the fire

Words

Cute and astute to boot

words
