The Song of the Word

(A Traditional Song)

The words you hear are based on meat - don't let the sophists fool you
Fear not upon the walking way - just let hysteria rule you
In their own world, the mad have laws - but only if they're written
The wise can write them different rules - for by the word they're smitten

Use no words for apologies - if you seek absolution
Action is the walking way - and words are no solution
The wise avoid apology - when ravers must be beaten
So sing not with the dusty tongue - no word is true till eaten
