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.

The higher the moral tone, the more suspect the speaker. ~Mason Cooley~
