Those 26 Alphabets!

I know all twenty six alphabets,
Comprising of compromising consonants,
To acquire the tunes of the vowels,
Changes its pitch at touch of the notes,
The blabber of the child and the drunkards,
The Innocence of the mind, that can't be clouded,
The oration of the clever, the alphabets are attired,
In perfectly woven silk thread with no cut and knots,
The speech of the learned, perfectly arranged,
As the colors of alphabetical rainbow cloned,
When the alphabets are put into the doubtful mills,
When they are left in the middle of the battlefield,
When they are kissed with the poisonously arsenic lips,
They get pounded into bits, then laid as the Legos slots,
Storms are felt, hearts are broken, and letters are strewn,
Resolution is made, agreements are signed,
Sanctions are sanctioned and the peace is nullified.
We know those twenty six alphabets,
That has made the world upside down.
we know those twenty six alphabets,
that have kept the human in self centered pits,
we know those twenty six alphabets,
that have made the man to think faster,
than the wind, but slower than the light,
sweeter than the honey, bitter than,
the ascorbic acid, sharper than the knives,
blunder than the cursor, wiser than the prophets,
prouder than the clowns, merrier than the clouds,
quieter than the space and possessive as the earth.
