Words are like obsolete Knives.

Before the first sharpened spear,

Man used blunt fists in battle.

But before battle man,

Used sharpened words on blunt men.

These sharpened words became obsolete,

Man could no longer be angry using words.

Man created spears, sharper than words,

Words became blunt.

Now our governments use words,

To release anger at their views of corruption,

History repeats itself,

We return to obsolete knives,

We repeat mistakes of our ancestors,

Strange how we have become obsolete,

But our knives are sharper than ever.
