COMING DOWN

Words are like photos
Words are like a code
Words are off the cuff
Words are off the beat
Words are like a joke
Words are like straight dope
Words are like sharp notes
Words are whispered in your ear

Words are like a sign
Words are like a cry
Words escape notice
Words betray the lie
Words enhance your aim
Words are on the wire
Words come with dispatch
Words are information

I’m never coming down out of that tree

Do you get the clue?
Do you hear the truth?
Words are far apart, but
Words are to the point
Words were all we had
Words were big magic
Then the words were mine
But the words meant everything
