My mouth is a beast.
My words are its claws.
My words are its teeth.
My words are its eyes.
My words are its wings.
It’ll eat anything.

My lips are a cage,
That lock in the beast,
That don’t let it out,
That don’t let it feast
On all the people that scream and shout.
My lips don’t let bad words come out.
