Spread the Words by Lynn White

Words of love, words of hate,
the conjoined twins of freedom.
Spread the word.
Psst… have you heard… pass it on..
Chinese whispers spreading
truth and lies,
the conjoined twins of freedom 
in the age of misinformation.
They’re spewing out of mouths
clacking and clicking
in the scrabble
to be free.
Wave after wave
breaking up
washing up.
A tsunami
of words.

I’m drowning.
