Limerick.24. Caution - Poem by Valsa George

Guard your tongue before words you fling
Let them not fly as from a sling
Tongue is to taste
And never to bite
If not, cut the length of your tongue

    A cobra frightens us so many times,
    the to and fro of its tongue continues,
    but once it bites it loses its poison,
    and becomes a poor earthworm.

    Tongue getting trimmed is a fine proposal. Anyway, this soft piece of flesh can be troublesome too. A fine limerick. (Report)Reply

    If caution is not followed one might bite one's own tongue. Nice advice. (Report)Reply
