Four Letter Words (Adult Language)

Four letter words are part of common life,
Utilitarian in their own way.
Crucial when describing edges of strife,
Kenspeckled scratches wherever they lay.

Should they be written in poetic verse,
Hellenists' may swoon or burst through their roof,
Ixion though must have spat the odd curse,
Tragedy begets the language of truth.

Where words are not the whole being of man,
And fair fragility does not divide.
Neither does using them all that one can,
Kindle or extinguish fires deep inside.

After all they are just words often said,
Sometimes spitting them out clears out one's head.

    A great poem, it's surprising how many adult four letter words
    There is.

  • Valsa George (7/28/2013 3:49:00 AM)

    Some such words are deliberately uttered, some involuntarily come out of our tongue, however they often help to vent out our steam! They too communicate and serve a purpose! A great sonnet! !

  • Joseph Anderson (7/27/2013 10:32:00 AM)

    Agreed-sometimes these adult, perhaps foul words help us to let off a little steam. A very
    provocative sonnet and you handled this so well-a10

  • Valerie Dohren (7/27/2013 4:58:00 AM)

    Excellent sonnet, very inspired write Anthony, well done.

  • Danny Draper (7/26/2013 9:23:00 AM)

    Well written. Way back when men were men and ugg stood for many things, it too must have covered a broad spectrum of meaning and very likely a majority or worse of its primitive conveyed message was swearing and worse.

    A lovely sonnet Anthony, your words flow perfectly.
