Words Are Weapons – A poem about the battles going on with divisions in society.

 

Words are Weapons

 

Words are weapons

In toxic times

They explode in minds

In poisonous rhymes.

 

The tongue becomes

A machine gun

To riddle brains

With quip and pun.

 

Ideas fan the flames

Of imagination

And release thoughts

That fuel that conflagration.

 

Out of battle

Of those who step in range

Are wondrous gifts

Of empowered change.

There is a battle going on between those who want a more caring world and those who do not care as long as they are free to do as they want.

There are those that see the destruction, unfairness and exploitation and those that believe that it is not happening.

There are the purveyors of fake news and the victims of it.

There are those who do not believe in experts and those who do.

There is a battle between the deniers and the accepters, between the fearful and the haters, the ones who have and the ones who haven’t.

I think it’s a battle best fought with words.
