War of the Words

A page unfolds
horizontally
into a vertical universe…

Vowels and Consonants conjugate
charcoaled characters draw their words
silented Syllables scream bloody murder
to the Sentence Structure Warlords.

Morphemes of meaning resuscitate
dictionaried Definitions from death
Nouns and Adjectives predicate
against this lexical threat.

Conjunctions clause in acrid air
Patterns and Rules leap on their prey
Periods and Commas control the chaos
Punctuation builds walls of conventional clay.

Phrases wander plains of parchment
Voice and Tenses are distraught and displaced
Participles meander the pages aimlessly
searching for Intransitive Verbs to copulate

Simple and Progressive modify their forms
Negatives and Questions join the fray
Auxiliaries are called on to fortify friendlies
Semanticated Syntax subjugates.

A loan word sighs in dismay.
