Power Of Speech

Luke 11:14-23


He cured a man who could not speak

And freed his tongue to talk

And his enemies accused him

Of doing the Devil’s work


Folk who could talk so freely

Employed the gift of words

To blacken one so innocent

Theatre of the absurd


Our age an age of media

We deal in words all day

And blacken one another

When we go out to play


Don’t waste your words on negatives

Inviting a defence

Speak in words so positive

You bring the world to sense
