BEHIND CLOSED MOUTHS



Some tongues hide behind closed mouths

not for timidity but for recess

And I dare not tag such, lazy

for a wise sword must take holidays

and rest in its sheath

otherwise it slits the throats of  so many lizards

only to discover its bluntness in the face of life's wizards

And we very well know that the joy

 of a brave hunter is not in killing big ants

but in killing and skinning big elephants

both to wear its tusks around the village

and hang them on the wall of his hut as collage
