-Lip Pistol-

His verbal lip-pistol
whistled violent verbs
and four letter words,
shattering my
confidence of glass
with each blast
from his gun,
a wicked contorted tongue.

This was inspired by an exhausting work related situation.

You welded your experience into a thing of beauty.
"a wicked contorted tongue." That was the perfect ending.
I really don't understand how they could still have a job either. Sounds like H.R. isn't doing their job. Sorry to hear this.

Keep up the good work. I enjoyed reading this.

Gotta "love" it when a company has to fear firing someone because they don't want to pay unemployment or something stupid like that.
