You are hereCriticism

cowards die a thousand deaths
only one, correctly done,
does more than just suffice.
thrown to women (an ancient rite)
to be torn apart piece by piece
raises ignominy to dizzy heights.
death by fire, water, battle
skewered, drawn and quartered,
all relatively merciful ends
compared to distaff scourging.
women need no weapons.
their tongues do well the deed
that takes more than simply breath itself,
but dignity and pride as well.
one may even posit that hell's fires
would be respite to such a humbling end.
a lone male amid female critics
brings fear to the strongest hearts.
a rouletting russian would rather run with fright,
than finish thus even his unexamined life.
