Another word for mustard

That's not how the word is pronounced, I hissed.
But the damage was done:
You tore the tongue out from every martyr
because you could not say the word for mustard
I taught you a week ago.
Torturing them over again
when we tell jokes about old men and fish
or different words for penis.
Am I wholly serious here? I'm not
serious enough. Reread the page.
Learn my name in the language
I want to speak. Silence
is the deadest tongue.
