Perverting a Good Thing

                             by Jim Rapp

(However the Wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, then peace-loving, gentle, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds and without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy.)
Jas. 3:17

People who speak self-servingly –
        Performers speaking obscenely,
        Poets speaking obliquely,
        Politicians speaking misleadingly,
        Power speaking arrogantly,
        Pornographers speaking indecently,
        Panderers speaking beguilingly,
        Professors speaking haughtily,
        Preachers speaking timidly,
        Provocateurs speaking irresponsibly 
        Purveyors speaking deceptively,
        Profiteers speaking clandestinely,
        Prognosticators speaking unremittingly,
        Patricians speaking condescendingly,
        Peasants speaking envyingly –
Pervert the potential of speech.
