Doublespeak

With far fewer words,
God made the birds.
With no double speak,
His sparrows they tweet.

Perfect they sing
With praise for the King.
How clumsy our words,
Compared to the birds.

Genesis 1:20 “And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.”

Wordy bully

Be content from day to day

Repeat the words that others say

Recycle words reuse them green

Talk us down to some new mean

Out of site words now obscene

Simplify your thought routine

Keep new words from intervening

Lower stress of thought and meaning

Beware the wordy bully who

Insists that thoughts require some chew

Bully’s words will interlink

May encourage you to think

Shunning imprecision

Making some decision

Toward thinking on your own

Quietly and all alone
