Emphasis Grows on Trees

Emphasis grows on trees
people pick it, harvest it and
stick it in their mouths
to talk big.

Veracity is a freebie
like a set of little wrenches
they give you when you buy
a set of tires.

Debate is a circus
you can watch on television
with elephants and donkeys
running in circles.

Calculation is clicked on
and comes up on the screen
when you don’t know the quesions
but need and answer.

Integrity is a hardy weed
you can’t make money off it
you can’t kill it but you can
spray poison on it.
