On the tip of

The tongue, a most interesting organ.

Without a tongue we would speak with fingers.

Tongueless, food would not be appetizing,

lovers would not taste their beloved’s flavor.

Imagine drinking wine or vinegar

and not tasting or judging the result.

Our brains might be impoverished without tongue,

writing might be more “tasteless,”

children might not express disapproval.

Human tongue, one of our great success stories!

Functions of the tongue: a musical sound!

Tongue Day should be a global holiday!

With the tongue one whispers into the ear

of the beloved, “I love you to the moon.”
