When Words Have Lost Their Meaning

by Jim Rapp

Something there is
that cannot abide
goodness

Everything of worth
it targets
for corruption

Wise words –
considered thoughts –
are targeted

Written words –
mankind's jewels –
are vulnerable

Heroic words –
true words –
are its bane

Anti-Truth
anti-Human
anti-Language
Truth-haters
fight Truth
by
corrupting words –
by proffering
alternative facts –
alternative truth –
which are
in fact
not facts
not truth
just wind –
a frail
and rotting
breath
of liars
that
Truth will
someday
snatch away

My breath
will not always
abide
with man
(Gen. 6:3)
