Torture of words

The tale that was spun was beautifully narrated

an edgy adornment of words, eviscerated

with elegant poise, he butchered the language

simple black and white, thrown together with anguish

to create velvet tones, so swift off the tongue

to rope poor souls into stories just begun

and the bloodshed it causes leaves little for thought

because without the tale, all would be for naught.
