hands firmly on the hips standing akimbo

the 10 of 12 given words:
aura hips eye contact disdain words 
strangers find woman lullaby accent 

showing an aura of authority
with hands firmly on the hips
standing akimbo looking sharply
through direct eye contact her lips

quivering speaking with disdain
words, without doubt, lost in anger
but still in control with restraints
while strangers around sensing danger

slowly retreat making a bee-line
for a safe exit never to mess around
for such a scenario will easily find
an explosive finality, not just a frown

this is not a woman giving a lullaby
not when uttering unguarded accents
to beat it without the normal goodbyes
the unruly scene should come to an end
