A Killing Word

Under the stars I sit, under the moon I wait, upon the earth to speak the lies of man.

This world we love the world we live, life and death a memory of the insane world.

The ocean, sky, and the dirt beneath your feel stained with the blood of men you’ve never met.

Words of war shed no blood, lies…. The saying “sick’s & stones can brake my bones but words can never hurt me” is total bull shitt!

Words can do more harm then any bullet; words can start fights in the school yard, can insight violence in man, can insight a war in a nation. Words have killed more men, women and children then in any war, person or thing.

Words can kill
