Don’t Be Fooled

ONE LITTLE WORD

In the world of words
In all the meanings
All the sly twists
And clever phrases
One confounds the rest
Tripping tongues stumble
On its smoothness
All innocent on the outside
Looking light and airy
Sounding simple and easy
But oh so heavy
Watch it roll backwards
Choking the slickest throat
Straining the strongest voice
Really who among you dares
To say I love you
