There are those deft people    

Who are often diplomatic

With their calculating wit

In answers and sentiments

But secretly being dismissive

To lesser skilled practitioners

That brave in honesty upfront

Reveling their desires or trust

Risking all their vulnerability

For sake of something- purer    

Just to be wounded or slayed

By sharp tongue of wordplay      

When deft secretly fears a love

They’re just too incapable…of
