The Mighty Word



The Mighty Word

How flighty, the nightly post,
How frightening, the sighting ghosts,
How contriving, the tidy speech,
How exciting, the writing street,
How reviving, the consigning faith,
How deriding, the lying fake,
How enlightening, the surmising blurb,
How mighty, the mighty word.
