Let the words flow

Let the words flow, I say,
let them flow and not be
held back by sanctimonious
censuring by those in control.

Let them always flow
all ye who who want to
build a dam and keep it
nice and tidy so it seems
there’s nothing wrong in the
whole shadowed wide world.

Let the words flow like a
cleansing stream to sweep away
duplicity and half-truths that
seem so reasonable but are
building cages to hold the birds.

Let the voices be heard.
Let the words echo out.
No more muzzles on authenticity.
Nothing but flow.
Nothing but truth.
