J D DeHart

Fierce Rhetoric

Are we so wrapped
up in the cloud
of how words work
that we don’t stop to listen?

I pause at the end
of the debate and think
who could have been persuaded
by tirade and bluster?

Then find out when I wake
up on election morning.

A world of masses heard
the same words I did and absorbed
a completely different message.

But I’m working at getting better.
