If Words Could Kill [2] - Poem by Gert Strydom

If words could kill,
then kill they will
without impunity
reaching out
and sucking in

twisting and turning
the truth to what
it could be
smearing with more
than mud
integrity

creating from lies
a own truth
to be believed
by those to where
it spreads
destroying the soul
without indemnity.

So how do I say
shush, be quiet
to those
who slander me?

I pray to God
to judge them
and He will
at His time
and try not associate
with them

believing that the blind whip
will at a time
come in to play
as sure as the wheel turns.
