A Satirical Mind

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Regardless of my quips and sport,

I must admit to wry retort,

convinced of clever verbal runs,

in words so wrapped and meanings sung.


Melodic phrases launched at speed,

to minds affronted, my soul in glee,

irreverent stares and blank replies,

from those unwilling to compromise.


They spit and flail and writhe in pain,

their minds confused with words inane,

to sink to primal human rage,

within their straight and rattled cage.


In mastered strokes of phrases glib,

retraction smooth does quell their jib,

relenting sharp and vengeful reply,

their bristles revert with hateful eye.


I smile a supercilious grin,

of conquest forced in tirade been,

to quickly place my sharp words down,

so no-one’s cut or bleeding found.


Satire runs within my veins,

my mind alert for quick refrain,

and in the end I mean no harm,

tis words that light my mind with charm.


Sorry....
