Mere Words

Never trust
Mere words
Spoken with intent
Never followed by the deed.

Never trust
Mere words
Meaningless syllables lined up,
Sound without a sense.

Never trust
Mere words
Noises in the fog
Uttered to make you loose your way.

Never trust
Mere words
Cawed in the dark
Flickering but no light.

Never trust
Mere words
Head without the heart
Logic without meaning.

Never trust
Never trust
Never trust
Mere words.
