Language And Violence by Mitja Lovše

Poem

Language and violence
connect more than you think.

If I call you a crap,
you feel a punch.

If I say peace and silence,
you reach a calm.

If I wail the new wars,
you start to shake.

If I howl the amends,
you check your wallet.

Language and violence
connect way more than you think.

So why aren’t we more careful
about using them both together?
