This tongue may slip
on words and tongue-twisters,
R's may not roll.
But this tongue is a vessel of language.
This tongue likes to talk,
and this tongue expresses thought.
I have not a forked tongue,
an easily morphed tongue.
This tongue has integrity.
This tongue has taste.
This tongue is in cheek,
it is sharp, not weak.
But this tongue stays in check.
I bite this tongue.
Not too much, however;
there is greatness on the tip of this tongue.

Its nice that the tongue seems to symbolize you as a whole. I love the title, its cool that you dont use the word in your poem because you did not need to. It has great meaning also, great job.
