“Sticks and Stones”

words are sticky
they can hurt, despite the rhyme’s insistence
beware therefore
those who hurl them carelessly
as pearls before swine
for their voices will carve your skin
and break your bones


This little piece is inspired by the words given to us at this week’s Sunday Whirl.
