Words on strike

Words on strike/ 
Words on strike/
Overcrowded words on strike/ 
Like a swarm of bees/ 
Words group hug to fish-hook the parliament’s mind/
Holding placards on the entrance written/
“I Don’t Know Yet Is Time Delayer"/
Don't waist time is the spirit words hold on to/

Zapiro a hero speaking in cartoon spray paint lingo/ 
Vocabulary disguised in animated expressions/
Words high-pitched on greyhound bus walls screaming small four five’s pay E-tolls/ 
Heavenly transport is sinfully packed with idioms/ 

No word will make it to paradise friend/ 
Jailed metaphors rely on words for parole/
On silent, words blink plan of action links/
Camouflaged in rhythms, words shoot spoken bullets/

Boneheads puzzled vernacular is spoken in head scratching styles/
Scrambling scrap-yards stored with irritated reverberated placards/
“I Don’t Know Yet Is Time Delayer"/
Rapture anticipating concession/ 

Echoes of word’s footsteps in tears for the motherland vibrated/
The government is cutting us like beards/
I don’t know yet is time delayer/
My poetry deep you don't know it yet/
Until my words go on strike/
