Don't Stir My Calm Water

Rating: 5.0


Don't stir my calm water
There is an active volcano
Ready to erupt
Inside of me.

Keep your hands
To yourself
If you strike me
A serpent is ready
To inject its venom into you.

Keep your harsh words
In your mind
Tame your mouth
Otherwise the hornets
Will hush you forever.

I tell you
Don't stir my calm water
You will be sorry
If you do.
