Double-Edged Sword [Poetry: Anytime, Anyplace...]

Poetry: Anytime, Anyplace, About Anything – Double-Edged Sword

By, Donna M. Monnig

Medieval Sword  - weaponmasters.com

Double-Edged Sword
 
Resulting in a sword,
       double-edged, the blade,
Favorable and unfavorable
       an analogy is made.
 
Normal English translated
       in expressions that speak,
A sword is life-saving,
       life-taking i.e. unique.
 
Image and idiom
       sharply collide together,
15th Century attested
       and tough as leather.
 
Resulting in a sword
       double-edged, the blade,
Favorable and unfavorable
       an analogy is made.

    Really love this one, Donna. But then, swords and other medieval weapons are kind of my thing.
