self-defense

Who can understand his errors? Cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. ~Psalm xix, 12-13

Word-scourge and number-bludgeon,
truth-obscure and love-twist;
constant-kill, right-assert,
insidious digression make.
Wrath-maintain, chagrin-belie,
trust-hinder, love-malfeasance,
virtue-tout and candor-flaunt.

Be humble-proud of all of it;
beware, though, of the kiss-betray.
