    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College- Part1

    Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the […]

The Salivary Slavery

| June 29, 2013 | 10 Comments

We are completely capable to operate and monitor
the movement of a spacecraft or a robot in Mars
however, we are powerless to hold under our control
if the tongue that’s within us gets farce.

The latest aircraft, submarine and the most
sophisticated weapons we know to use
Alas ! we are ignorant or vulnerable
concerning our delicate tongue’s misuse

We know how to polish ourselves
with expensive facial creams
but lack in polishing our communication
that can make or mar our dreams.

We have the ability to train
the most ferocious animals
but lack in skills to refrain
from the ferocity of our tongue

Normally we choose when,
where and what to eat
Hardly, do we think about all these
before we get to speak

Our inner and outer strengths
signify our true bravery
An accurate use of our tongue
will enable us to break out of the salivary slavery

    As they say…words can’t be taken back and they can cause sufficient damage for a lifetime!

  4. Very inspiring read. Though we make so many tongue-in-cheek remarks, we don’t know how to bite our tongues. Freudian slips always land us in trouble as they become an instrument of anarchy.

  5. How well have you compare tongue to materialistic things and interconnect those examples to better understand the differences .. Its was a nice read …

    My favorite lines…
