Her nature tempestuous
Like a storm at sea
Yet in calm waters
speaking civilized words
Carrying poison 
Delivered flawlessly
Taking down her prey
Wounding, but not slaying
With a prepared agility
delivering a soothing touch
to those she injured
Offering words of comfort
Unwittingly welcomed
Any resistance
Could invoke ire
She was fragile like a bomb
