The Power of Words

"You're pathetic. You're just plain dumb."

"You're useless and you are simply no fun!"

People, please! I beg of you, just hold your tongue.

Remember that nothing you say can ever be undone.


And you see, words are rather painful blows indeed.

A writer says so, what more proof do you need?

Why do you feel oh so majestic when they plead?

You would feel awful if you were the next to bleed!


So please, refrain from being hurtful, unjust or unkind!

You'll turn our fine language from being so divine.

When you open your mouth, remember reason and rhyme

And give me back my confidence, as it is rightfully mine!
