Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch

Sentences are clipped
and displeasure apparent
Words becoming terse,
sharp and cutting 
Behavior aberrant
A blindside occurs
Sudden and intense
Innocent party
reeling from verbiage
Scrambling for defense 
A foray is unwise
with no gift of fortitude
Holding breath, closing eyes
praying for silence
until furor subdued
Christine Bolton - Poetry for Healing ©

Word Prompts:


Fort (itude)
