You Should Be More Suspicious Of Words - Poem by Patti Masterman

You should be more suspicious of words
That can take you by the hand; lead you astray,
Along circuitous routes, to who knows where:
Even if you've opened up your mind, your heart,
Even though the word, would seem to be your friend.
If you want to know the true nature of a word,
Just look at it's buddies; who it hangs around-
Do some of it's associates, have blood on their hands?
Have any been spotted, near the scene of a crime?
You'd better check references, before opening your mind,
And be sure that you choose from the best that's around
Before you decide, to finally settle down.
