Those forked tongues should be stabbed with a fork
Love your use of rhyme and alliteration here. Excellent.
How perfectly you portray the betrayer here. The rhyme scheme and concise diction are ideal.

Cool, I love when such few words can say so much…and with meter and rhyme to boot!! Well done, Mary!
Clever indeed. Funny that so many are about talking.
I need to echo Ginny's sentiment here...stated well, Mary...concise and powerful.
It slithers like a snake... I like the line flip and fillet me..
Nice Mary. Your 'fork' may in practice, by using your "f' word choices, be a spatula, a knife, or a set of tongs. :) You are sooo clever.I love it. And can relate. I am chief cook and bottle washer at our home now for at least one more week. Mrs. Jim is on crutches recovering from the bunion surgery on January 2nd. For sure I have no evil intent toward her...
Mary, that's got great pace and rhythm ~
Oh yes ....
Oh those forked tongues....love it!!
Clever and great :)
This is VERY cool.
Very clever word play, with a strong message... I don't trust those who compliment with a forked tongue.
Wow. That is pretty impressive. You did an amazing job with such few words.
ha. it could be....smiles....ah be careful they dont just use you you know....smiles.
Wish I could say I hadn't been there. Great job, Mary, with just a few small nails for that hammer.
Wow that is short and to the point (HAH!) thanks for showing us what to do-NOT do... : )
Oh that tongue that wishes to spoon later! Wonderful to read....very clever!
With one so clever, this couldn't possibly be about you! Love it.
Wow, wonderful use of words, Mary. Fabulous (and fun) rhymes.K
Love the shortness and directness of it. Many thanks.Greetings from London.
