Word Dust

2) c) Learn to be free with your words, but with care;
Burning passions of anger and strife bring
Worms of evil into mangers of life.
Then let not your tongue speak in anger, sweet
Fen better left to the darkness beneath
These cobbled streets. Witness, bequeath your words
To lease the power set within; for words
Of fleeced bowers where you alone profit
Do profit you less. Fair truth spoken with
True poetic flair did youth display. Still,
The older they got the more dismay crept
Into their hearts; and there, kept at bay
By suspicions and distrust they will say
Nothing. Allowing word dust to collect.
