    Clever! With much chagrin I’d have to admit that I have been classed by some as one of those silver tongued ones though I would have to mention that most of the time it would not be one’s heart that needs guarding!


  2. Temptation … so naughty.
    Great one ..


  3. I have been charmed before by a silver tongued snake charmer….learned my lesson…great haiku and advice!


  4. so few words convey so much!

  9. Silver tongues are indeed like “fool’s gold”! Worth suspicion!

    These little haiku are valuable in the way they encapsuate big thoughts.

    Another blogger wrote about people charming us in comments…about sincerity vs. charm. I once dated a man who used charm consistently. When I asked him to stop, he was stunned. When he asked why, I explained that it was a form of manipulation and dishonesty. He said it was good manners and an art. It said that surely lying is therefore an art too!

    The other deception about charmers? We never know who they are because they hide behind that facade. In fact, neither do they know who they are!


  13. Snakes slither and slide
    Go ahead and charm away!
    Remember I bite
