Intricacies of B.S.

I have always loved words. When I was a kid if I heard a new one I would repeat it until the image , percieved spelling included, was embedded on my mind.
I learned a new one almost everyday...I think.

Words.

They create reality.

Words sustain reality.

Add depth...to shallow concepts.

Shed light on dark ideas.

Arrange them correctly and you are a magician.

Twisting churning the malleable paradigm you live in.

Talking to a God you do not know.

Exposing truth within a giant lie

Words.

Do all those things and more

an ode to reality

Nice poem Dave....

I don't know about you, but my love for words comes from not only understanding their meaning and context but -- especially for slang -- why the mean what they do. I am a closet etymologist. Shit...I think I just came out.
