The Potency of Words - by Bob Atkinson

The Potency of Words
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

few powerful winds approach
the potency of words
screaming eagles end their flight
when challenged with our verbs

lions stop their viscous charge
when hand raised and told to stop
bears decide there are some prey
more easily devoured

words contain the ultimate
force of which we're made
they topple foreign governments
with repeated threats of rage

words need in their entirety
containment of these powers
because of uses not sincere
or wrongness of desires
