War Of Words – The Speaker.



An Original Dark Poetry based on certain political figures.


And he speaks so very well with tones smooth and round

Words that are compelling and taste like chocolate brown

A sweet and sticky web ensnaring those who never listen

While they swallow every word, still the crowd are missing

Hollow hatred in his voice truly taints all those about

These very words are weapons, cast to keep them down

A wrath unleashed on all those if his will they would oppose

The wolf pack, thugs by any name, are often predisposed

To settle scores with violence, such outcome he desires

Raze the very world to ground, a cleansing done through fire

Why when he speaks against us are we dogs upon the floor?

Thought I heard him clear his throat outside our very door

Before his words destroy us

And we’re no longer free

Shout out for all the world to hear

“We won’t be your detainees!”

War Of Words – The Speaker.

Martin Niemöller

First, they came for the Socialists and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out —

Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me —

And there was no one left to speak for me.
