Double-Edged Tongue

My sword may be dull
but my words are sharp
My gun is empty
but my mind is full

Of things
that can make you
hurt

I can’t swing a mace,
but what I could say
is equivalent to
that final blow

bringing you
down to your
scarred knees

I have no cannon to fire
Yet the cynic
within me
is enough

to shoot you down
and shatter your
bones

I am my own weapon
