Crossed Wires

Intonations hard pressed
to understand,
realise, compromise
when we deny
emotions in a voice
Of the words that tumble forth
comments unthought, unplanned
We misunderstand
our fellow man
Slash across the chest
words said in jest
Sting of a thousand bees
Bullet to the kneecaps
banter for the masses
Carrion birds on a living calf
What people say
What people mean
What people hear
What people feel
