It Used to Be That We Used Words: The Sunday Whirl – Wordle

Nowadays you don’t need words to start a war, just a computer…

Each week The Sunday Whirl invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “Wordle’s” 12 words. This week it is:

It Used to Be That We Used Words

It used to be that we used words
before we went to war;
though tales of diplomacy
prove we’ve never gotten far.

Talk is cheap, the hawks would cry,
with never-ending flows
of stands we took which ebbed out hope,
eventually came blows.

A quieter war is surfacing.
Nuclear days are past.
Our battles drip invisible
onto hard drives thought to last.

The way we now can cause mishaps,
takes the form of viral apps.
