You And Your Words - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the words that you say
do not anymore waves of the sea

because you never mean them
and they who hear them
cannot even think of birds winging
on the park
pecking on some grains thrown
by well meaning citizens
of this country

the words that you flaunt
have become black and white peacocks
and the frogs who live on the fog
stopped croaking
confused about an evolutionary change
that they do not expect

simply put
because you never mean what you say
you have also become nothing to them

you are mean and
you mean nothing at all
