Marching Words

Finalist in the 'Play On Words 2021' competition

Words march into battle against silence
Silence marches without a word,
While words sing a song of hope and glory
Old words die,
New ones take their place
They battle to the death,
In the end many die
But the words have won,
The silence broken,
Though they’ll never be the same
When the silence comes again,
They’ll be ready to fight
Against silence for evermore,
But silence will always be there!
