Oft The Blade Is Unsheathed
Author: Elizabeth Squires


oft the blade is unsheathed
and given it's nasty lead
to jab unprotected back

no vision to the rear
and bleeding most severe
who could do such a deed

office hypocrites
are capable of it
so called friends
imbibe in it

to your face they'll play a charade
then with no scruples
they'll unsheathe the blade

You are the mistress ....

You are the mistress/master of wordplay - and it's an exercise that is always a good workout for my creative muscles ...
