Swear————— Even A little


Swear on God

an exclamation perhaps

not so good

could lead to a mishap

swear on you

by placing the hand on  the head

swear by you

a rant turns a curse instead

cheap it sounds

distasteful all the  more

has no grounds

appears almost sore

the swear  often

leads you nowhere

people might not soften

they would stare

knit their brows

whimsically espy you

their notice would be  very coarse

tolerated only by a few

most would fly

like to escape the torment

as it lands on a wry

the anger, then a lament

slowly rises up high

the swear echoes  sonorously

” swear by God,swear on you”

all the more rather ambiguously.
