Words, are so easy to say

They can be used in anger

Or used in play

But once they are used

They are there to stay

Home truths, they tell me

Should always be said

But if they are hurtful

Surely they had best stay in your head

Or do you fire them regardless, other hearts to shred

Keep them in context, that is the trick

But if said in anger, context tends to split

Smashing the links between mind and the tongue

Peace it will end, as trouble is begun

'Eye?' Asked the Herdsman, to his well travelled Guest

'I?' He reacted, confused by the request

'Aye' said the Herdsman, offering a plate

'Ah' clanged the penny, in the traveller’s thought

To refuse would be an insult, so a small eye was sort
