So Words Become

So words become; the order of the day and order of the day becomes the soldiered meaning of all work and play, the ever present, beating drums. Then words become; the lure of the lie and liars lure every son with shadows of gold 'til they all but die, to retire, to be, to be done. And then, once again; the words become the order of every day to sleep, to awake, to be dead and done, 'til all words fly, ever away. ~TH~

Tom. this is a 7 and a FAve. There is something in the structure and the circular pattern in both the stanzas and the overall write that I really like. Each stanza stands on its own, but the creates a nice whole. ~Jan

Thank you Janet! It was an unforced effort; upon reflection I decided to let it stand as is. I was afraid if I worked the dough it would get tough, and I like the flow as is. Thanks so much for your kind comments. ~Tom~
