In the lost words of language
in the gaping hordes of time
there stands a hero
he fights with rhyme.
For the pen is mightier than the sword
his words we lean upon.
In the maelstrom in the eye of the storm of silence
his words cascade like a fountain
A tranquil place in a sea of violent words
great big man monsters attack him with verbs
birds peck at his eyes with profanities
and troll him on Facebook.
But he doesn’t care, he barely looks
for his heart is strong as is his soul
and he breathes in air
and exhales poetry.
