In frustration the voice of Silence speaks;
pestered out of exile by louder mouths;
cannoned by paternalistic might
into fields of feisty battle;
invited to defend itself against
the din of popular culture
intellectual masturbation
and arrogance.

Cease for once your boasting,
burbling, infernal blasting.
Cease your wrangling, warbling,
weak lambasting.
Silence has a point to make.

    Love that closing couplet. A piece of true rhetoric.

    This begins and ends so strong! Bravo! I like the point you made, as well… Sometimes silence can say so much more than words or noise.

    I didn’t get a chance to comment before, but I really, really love this piece! Silence is so unappreciated and we must listen to it more.
