When Words Fail - Nov PAD day 23



When Words Fail

They’re powerful tools,
dangerous weapons –
sharp, cutting, explosive;
falsehoods, fiction, half-truths,
insults, epithets, jeers, sneers,
griping, sniping, expletives
(that ought to be deleted).
But once we become
a vituperation nation
one can only hope
that words
will fail
us.
