Give and take

Too much talking wears the listener out

Keep silent then until you feel no doubt.

Learn how you can take in what they say

But don’t reply until another day

Incontinence in)2 speech can overwhelm

We can drown the other with our tongue.

If you go dumb because you feel deep grief 

Emulate the insect on its leaf

Your words will not destroy your

 anger’s good.

Chew your meat, for you will taste no blood
