Vulgar Tongue - by Bob Atkinson

Vulgar Tongue
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

".... she had an acute mind, good morals,
bad manners, and a vulgar tongue ...."
France Under the Regency, Perkins

describing us as if a bunch
of satiated sots
no plan of distribution
would satisfy our lot

twelve years into the program
no words can thus describe
how we tear into confusion
not satisfaction of our mind

we have those habits resolute
although in argument
some say we be delusional
or wicked in our plan

here in the mortal battlefield
we fight for right and pay
while ingratiating destitution
into our clothing frayed

to come toward conclusion
of that which we began
helps us in our final days
take stickers on our backs

as signs of accomplishment
we did something to another clear
good, bad or in between
at their jabs we sneer
