Each word separated from the other
removed from the greater part which gave it meaning,
the vowels waterboarded,
The CAPITALS made to sit in corners
while comma's had their toe-nails pulled.
Question marks eradicated,
full stops turned informer.
Phonic's disembodied to a hum
their transitions obliterated.
All died in lonesome silence
un-sentenced to oblivion.
Amnesia set them free
within a Shoah of language,
a Kristallnacht of words
the deaths head scream of intolerance raged.
Take a text, a sentence, a letter,
impregnate its potency with defiance,
release a million broken words
and hear their truth sing out.
