Alphabet Blues

 

All these signs,

squiggles and lines,

we know just what they mean;

sense abounds,

we know those sounds

when those marks are seen.

 

When they’re heard

we know the word

that to our minds is sent,

but once it’s said

escape has fled,

there’s no time to relent.

 

The alphabet,

those meanings set,

can be used for good or bad.

The words you say

won’t go away --

take care when you are mad.

 

Who would think

these marks of ink

could stab and cause such pain.

They’ll leave a scar,

forever mar --

a wound that will remain.
