Didactic Discourse?

Published April 24, 2015 by Laura Crean Author

Spinning faster

Killing time

Colours merging

Into lines

Mixing metaphors

Finding space

Confusing patterns

Losing face

Doubting reason

Choking rhyme

Turning seasons

On a dime

Blending sounds

With attitude

Making diphthongs

Long and rude

Wordy wisdom

Pithy puns

Feeding poets

On the run

Getting dizzy

Vision veiled

Party politics

Where sense has failed

Tying tongues

Morally muddled

Sheering sheep

While they’re still huddled

Tattered talk

Cheap and nasty

Voices venomous

Ranting raspy

Spinning faster

Killing time

Colours merging

Into lines

Didactic discourse

Making space

A rallying resource

For the human race?

I was asked what the poem was about – I’m not entirely sure myself what I am trying to say with this poem LOL I think it is about how words are used flippantly, that they can cause confusion, send us in a spin, be used to make someone look clever or funny or important. that they can have a moral undertone –they have power –  but in the end they’re just words – without action they are nothing. That’s why it ends in an interrogative.
