Dumbing Down

Words have power.

The generals know it.

The dictators know it.

Know they must stop the flow

of words.

Arrest it.

Arrest the poets,

the singers and songwriters,

the graffiti artists, the comedians,

the speakers and shouters.

Make them dumb.

Words have power.

So we must swallow them

in fear

as they rob us of our culture.

As they make us dumb.

Dumbed down.
