Speaking Eloquently

Updated on October 14, 2013

“Speaking Eloquently”


She was enticing,

Mesmerizing and gracious.

He was verbose,

And so very loquacious.

.

Each was the ultimate,

Master of conversations.

They knew all there was to know,

From Genesis to Revelations.

.

They did some numbers on Kings,

From Judges to Jude.

They could Mark some Acts,

Without being rude.

.

Always copious,

Often hilarious,

Cogent, fluent, eloquent.

And always garrulous.

.

She was poignantly glib.

He was emphatic.

She was brilliantly colorful,

And demonstrably dramatic.

.

And so the creature,

Can take any form,

And distort what once,

Was considered the norm.

.

Fascinating to hypnotizing,

The audience will immerse.

It quotes every scripture,

Every word in every verse.

.

The silver tongued devil,

May make a perfect mistake,

To better disguise,

This treacherous snake.

.

And today, in its absence,

I can hear its words of choice,

And the beguiling timbre,

Of its persuasive voice.

.

Pour my truth,

A little paler,

Leave your elegance,

To the tailor.

.

It’s the most pertinent,

Reason why,

All the truths in this world,

Add up to one big lie.

.

Science proves old beliefs,

Are easy to shake.

But even the Garden of Eden,

Had a silver-tongued snake.
.

It’s “good old” and “new age”,

And really quite an attraction.

The serpent quotes perfect scripture,

To its own satisfaction.

.
