Restrained

The touchy issue
of damaged tissue
is difficult to broach

for stout defenses
will stun the senses
of those that dare approach,

but hearts and flowers
can crumble towers
if given half a chance—

you must be subtle
with each rebuttal
to stir the stoic stance.

The rhythm and words are really great.

Indeed, folks underestimate "flower power" for lack of a differant term. Just the other day I used flowers to stop a dude in his tracks.
Granted the flowers were in a tera cota pot and I smashed it against his noggin...
but flowers were there.
