Poets - We're Belligerent To A Fault

Poets fight with words and not with swords [N]

Cutting to the heart. Curved blades, glinting like smiles [F]

Thrust - an insult. Parry - a rejoinder. [Karin]

Glance - a snide remark. Riposte, er, a riposte [Beefy ]

Ouch! That touchéd a nerve [Ethetran]

Poets love with words and not just kisses [Dassn't Say]

Tending to the heart. Pursed lips, hinting at joy [Beefy ]

Flirting with metaphors. Wooing with rhyme. [archaeopteryx]

Stroking with compliments. Hope she's not averse to verse [Beefy ]

Ooh! You can scan my meter [Ethetran]

Poets live with thoughts and not just wishes [P]

Mothballing the heart. Reason, shimmering ideas [Beefy ]

Even when dusting or doing the dishes [Dassn't Say]

Their inner world is uncluttered with worldly things [Ethetran]

Oh! Get real, you dreamer! [Beefy ]
