Poem - Contextual Graffiti

Updated on December 27, 2012

words are our contextual graffiti

scratched on the hard surface of our lives

some soon weathered away skin like

others etched deep in a stony soul

the words of the songmaker

simple songs sang sadly

the words of the poet

painful poems performed piously

the words of the warrior

violent visions vindicated victoriously

the words of the politician

platitudes paraded pathetically

the words of the lover

treasures trembling tenderly

the words of a child

innocently individually indelibly

the words of a president

sincerely said somberly surely ?

the words of government

overtly opposing opposition

the words of the righteous

honourably honestly horribly

the words of the zealot

sadly selfishly seriously

the words of the religious

needlessly negative nothingness

the words of a victim

openly overcome obviously

the words of the freedom fighter

truthfully thoughtfully terrible

.
