The Complexity of Word


April's PAD Challenge: Write a Complex poem.  Complex is a complex word that can refer to mental state, apartments, difficulty of a situation, and so many other complex situations.

Words are fickle, winsome things
With which to build our boasts of sand
Unless their guise is augmented
With upright action of the hand

The logic of the human heart
Is quick to defend and to blame
We ought to ponder carefully
These rudiments of hope and shame

How smooth these syllables ally
What credence fills their guild with voice
Yet, we do well to recognize
The silence thunders with our choice
