Villanelle – A wordy piece.

Words can stab, hurt, cut, bruise
Equally words can soothe
Writing obsenities, really is there an excuse?

Words do not have a choice for such misuse
They never know if or when they are to be used like a sychte
Words can stab, hurt, cut, bruise

To bow in the face of this I refuse
I, the poet am here to openly exude
Writing obsenities, really is there an excuse?

How am I supposed this dilemma to diffuse
When in this villanelle I must include
Words that can stab, hurt, cut, bruise

Yes words were born to confuse
Before any exclusion, we should appreciate the smoothe
Writing obseities, really is there an excuse?

Sixteen lines in, it is beginning to confuse
Time at this point for the poet to denote as RUDE
Words which can stab, hurt, hurt, bruise
Writing obscenities, really is there an excuse?
