twisted words

The wise men used
Words as warriors of wisdom.
Their voices still glisten
In the eyes of the witness.
Even though buried
Under the blanket of stale dirt,
The echoes reach the lost-
Through the epitaphs
Gracing their graves.

Now,
The words are used
By the vile as
Weapons of mass destruction.
The mesmerising meaning
Burnt beyond belief.
The ancient intelligence
Writhe in their tombs,
Their souls as twisted
As their noble notions.
