Words Matter

For Barack

Words matter!
Feelings scatter,
Statements quake
And heartbeats patter.

Signals scramble,
Insights amble,
Softspeech shines
And grifters gamble.

Senses sizzle,
Falseness fizzles,
Memories melt
And longings bristle.

Tensions linger,
Wrongs remember,
Crossness creeps
And wimpers whisper.

Words matter!
Thoughts meander,
Feelings fail
And questions answer.
