A WORD

An open mouth issuing words
Is a better tool if
The thought processes are first engaged
With the intention of choosing words
That are calculated 
For best effect 

A funny thing is a word
It takes on a life of its own
Depending on 
How 
Who 
Where 
And when it’s said

A simple device to explain
And tell a story
But a wicked unforgiving tool
If used unwisely 

Diplomacy and tact 
Are often outwitted
By the nuances of words
With multiple meanings

The fool rushes in 
Prating
Judging
Condemning
Showing his ignorance

A dictionary should be held dear
Before words are scattered far and wide 
Alighting on eyes and eyes
That misinterpret
The simple becomes complex

No word is powerful enough 
To self-destruct after been uttered
None can be erased from the minds of those that
Witness its effects 

A word can please
Can praise
Can lift the spirit
It can right wrongs real and imagined

Words are dead till used
Life is breathed into them
Depending on the sentence in which they are strung

Say what you mean or wish
But words can have an unexpected kick
