WHAT CAN WORDS DO?

@BrainyPoet: What Can Words Do?


(Title poem of my book 'What Can Words Do?')

What can our inked words do?

Come together, plot a coup
Retrieve the stolen crown
Plant a smile o’er frown
Make lying tongue
Sing Truth's song
Tell tyrant:
"Recant!"...?

Could they be worthless ink stains
Corpses on paper plains
That flies won't inspect
Ghoul-feast reject
Lacking stink
Wasted ink?
Tell me!

What can words do?
