Deepest Cut First

She is first with a barb
or an insult
to make all in attendance aware
of her way with wit
– like a whip.
She is sharp.
She is stunning.
She is destructive
mostly to herself.

She makes the jokes,
and offers the critique.
She maintains control
of the damage done,
sharp, a scythe.
She is cruel
and suffers fools few,
brutal and bright each in turn.

Her attacks are quick
and most often self-inflicted.
She hurls the stones
shattering homes
before any other dares
so she can go on the hunt
for sinners.

She is not without sin
but has searched herself thoroughly
so she knows her own perfectly well
and is able
with clear conscience
to attack at will.
