To speak is such a beautiful thing

But wasting air and breath that saves lives
is a true issue of pollution and waste

to speak without thought - only frenzied haste.

To speak is to voice an otherwise silent gift

But to open your mouth and speak not the truth
is a pointless passage

to present us into a land of no good use.

To speak when silenced is such a brave thing to do

But to silently speak amongst the walls
is a futile attempt of much contempt

to build a wall at Jericho's expense.
