Auras toxic with spite
the two spit flame
one tosses verbal daggers
the other deflects them with denial
a third enters the fray
with a calm aura
using truth
to try and quell the toxic storm
Venomous spit, his only reward
the two disperse
the storm came to an end
til next they meet
and the poison flies again

if the pen is mighter then the sword then the word processer must be mighter then the missile

tight write
This is .. in my opinion .. an excellent example of concise poetry where words aren't wasted ...
fantastic final line too! Enjoyed reading this more than once and it could have been about any conflict. I don't need to know who it refers to because you've made it encompassing.
