Swords and Tongues

Drawing an enemy's blood with his sword
Is an easy task for a warrior,
Ask him to stab a friend with the same
And he will no sooner put back the sword into its sheath..
Powerful curses by the one who was betrayed
Comes easy to him at the receiving end,
But ask him to utter an unkind word to his kin
And watch him seal his tongue with a glue unknown..

Both swords and tongues possess powers unknown,
Which is why swords are wielded by a select few..
However tongues unlike swords, are wielded by all
So whether you draw magic out of it or blood, remember it's solely on you..
