Theme: Sycophancy

An Oily Tongue

An oily tongue hides a wicked heart,
It pollutes his soul for being smart.
Jealousy floats up, ego in his eyes,
Ill-will kills purity of mind for lies.  

He wields his sweet-coated words
On poison mixed edges of swords.
No limit there exists to what he can,
Stooping to anything just for a gain.
