The last Word

The last Word

Stephen Wordsmith's picture



The pen is mightier
than the sword
And flies
with a far more fluent grace
But the latter,
I cede,
sows more discord,
When stabbed repeatedly in one's face.

Good night.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh, don't you just hate it when they stab you with a sword repeatedly in the face! Pen is much less painful, especially the feather end of a quill, I think. Smile

Both can be sharp! But not as sharp as your writing!

ha, great one! -- perhaps it should be set to music? (if you're interested, I might be able to? )

Posting moments before the site closes... with such sharp and incisive wit... yes, that works.

this is amazing. i love the image of being stabbed in the face and I really like the way "And flies
with a far more fluent grace" sounds and feels. it's also a great way to describe the movement of a pen. very cool.
