Words, words, words

Theologians, politicians, ad-men and journalists,
like world controllers,
subtly deceive,
murdering words
in academic gulags.

They know not what they do. Good
God, destroy them
before they reach into the souls'
of my children and
cut out the tongues that make us human.

-- a reflection on Hamlet II.ii and Lewis' Abolition of Man
