How you use a tool can be beneficial or destructive


The Sarcastic Tool


I can attest
that sarcastic comments
made in jest
can be accepted
with humbleness
and found funny
when intelligence
overrides
an ego's
pride
and prejudice


And too, I can say
sarcasm used
in a way
to hurt and dismay
one who's deemed
the tongues prey
diminishes both
egos in play
and pettiness
wins the day

Well said. I am prone to sarcasm unfortunately. I hope it is usually in jest. As you say there is another kind which is driven by ego. Great work :)
