Numbers Vs. Words

some people measure the value of a word by the total number of letters
overcrowding pages
hoping to drown the sound
numb the mind
hiding the fact
they are better spellers than storytellers


Some Things Never Change

the white guys in the uniforms
shoot a black man unsure why
the blood is always red!
