Tongue Of A Gun - Poem by Cecelia Weir

The most insubordinate crime
In this life ever done.
Was the deadliest crime
Which was done with the tongue.

The tongue of liars
And of those who knew.
But would settle for silence
Instad of whats right
Or what could commend you.

Peter and Judas done it to Jesus
People will do it to you.
But here is your test
My brotherly friends
It proves how much you grew.

You must still encourage
Despite what others may choose.
You can't be involved
In gossip and distrust
No matter what points to you.

For the worst that can happen
It doesn't happen with a gun.
But by the triggers of society
Its done with the tongue.
