How painstakingly

They twist every word uttered

Squeeze truth out of them

Hurl at us the chaff of words

To feed on them and be happy

They do not take us for fools

They know

We are caught between

Scylla and Charybdis

Base twisters

The word today is Twist

  1. oh my, i do feel this. you did such a magnificent job of conveying all you wanted to say into forty-four words – i can see the politicians with their crooked words and hearts knowing that politics is a game their audience has no choice but to play.

Thank You :)
