2010 – 8th Grade 3rd Place Winner

Caitlin Rubin, New York.

Is the Pen Mightier than the Sword?

The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword

The inky tongue,
Or pointed tip,
The razor blade,
Or razor lip.

No pain is felt,
‘Til blood is bled,
Yet pain is felt,
As words are said.

The sharpest sword,
Will tarn’ and dull,
Whilst harshest speech,
Gives longest pull.

Black blood runs thick,
Red drips away,
Both leave a stain,
Just jet will stay.
