Rhetorical

Tread carefully

words spoken

actions taken

are not easy to forget

when used as weapons

to destroy

to raze

to belittle.

Saccharine sweet

falling from sadistic lips

mouthed insincerity

practiced

meaningless

tear down those who offer nothing

to further you…..

your agenda

your need for world domination.

Emptiness

hollow

do they plug you in at night

downloading program after program

on how to exterminate

projects

people

countries

to further decay

black rot seen reaching out

spreading like a plague.

Wonder if your following knows

realizes

understands…..

You do not believe in them.

You do not believe them capable.

Hot headed

easily manipulated

pointed

used

furthering an agenda

of dissolution.

Detractors

cases built showing abuses

suddenly gone

torture

pain

death

devastation.

Witches cackle

curses follow

the path your have bored

foolhardy at best

ruination of the world

dancing as Nero played his fiddle.

Abject horror

bombs reign down…..

Today’s tomorrow

desolation

lifeless

what you have done

cannot be undone

are you ready to live with that?

  1. Words have the most poisonous barbs and we in danger of using them this way whenever we allow ourselves to become consumed by anger, then there are those who seem to gain some sort of sadistic pleasure from using words as barbs. A shame when words can also be used to send hugs. I don’t know about ‘Witches cackle curses follow
    the path you have bored’. I think my wife might have a lot to say about that as a Wiccan 🙂 🙂
