Words hide power

A chapter in the book Spellings

Words are Magick

by Apostle Janos

Harnessing the power inside the word,
they say the pen's mightier than the sword,

equal, at the least, to a magick wand.
With sentences, be it prose or verse or song,
rhythm, spelling and grammar being not too wrong.

A shaman drives conscience to wake and change,
same goes for artists, through their whole range.

Spelling's important to poem and spell,
grammar and grimoire, does it ring a bell?

Art can transform. That's an old classic!
Leaving that power is a loss tragic,
for those who practice art that's magick.


Inspired by Alan Moore's ideas as expressed in an interview of his on art and magic.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
