Fonts and Guises


Fonts and Guises


There are some men

Who need wars

To hang their egos on



Most of them

Although together


We might

Just break them



Then there are poets

Who need nothing more

Than bread and words


Where then

Might they

Hang their hero’s


Where better than the

Consciences and pages

Of both readers and sages


Tis true then

Truth comes in a

Range of fonts and guises

      Ohh, hail fount of all wisdom (is that you, or partly so.?!).
      Well, there's something sort of psychological in fonts, I think, e.g. in church 'All join in the words in bold print'' and italics used as 'instructions', etc.
      Got headache now, thinking too deep this time of morning!

      • Neville

        Thank you Ste... Orchidee.. and just you be careful now...

      • Fay Slimm.

        Yes true heroes exist to better others and what better than using not swords but words. A truth indeed my friend..............

          Glad you see it my way... not surprised, but glad.... thanks Fay....
