Be the quill,
When others want to stain.
Glide and scratch, with bridled disdain.
With metered verses and measured words,
Aspire to inspire, and not to maim.
Words are potent, wield with care
This is not a play of truth or dare
Be circumspect; keep the facts in check.
For what's worse than the truth untold,
Is the lie that should never have been told.
