Words are dangerous
Words are dangerous things, you know?
they represent a thing they're not.
mistaken meanings can stealthy grow,
before you know it, knowledge-rot.
Take a look inside a dictionary
define a word then see it grow
where one word sat now spring up many
all definitions none can know.
Eternally deferred from the real
we seek a different way,
layers of ourselves to peel
back present, now today.
