Words on paper
Have no meaning
Why are they there. What really IS a dictionary.
All a jumble of letters
That someone threw together.
A slew of wonder
A plunder of lines
No real meaning
No real difference
All the same roots
Made by the same pencil
A b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
They all become one big fat clump
We learn to read, we learn to write
Who says what we write is right.
Words have meanings,
Truths tell lies.
Bibles tell stories,
As do novels
Each person holds a truth,
To each their own.
Each a new wonder
Story to behold
Who are we to decide what can pass the test.
