I forgot to post the date. :-) Since I know little about the mechanics of poetry, I would like to know how to fine-tune this free verse poem for wording and punctuation.
At The Church Picnic

At the church picnic
Words flow.
With swift transition,
Facts bend
From tongues
That twist
Truth into falsehood.
Words grow
In dirt
Like weeds
That bear
No fruit.
Honesty yields,
Overcome by
Whispers that convert
Wrong to right.
With swift transition,
Words deceive
By distortion
Mired in speculation,
Without hesitation.
Words fall
On ears
Without barriers,
And pass
Through tunnels
With swift transition
Into cesspools
Swirling with
The dross
That drips
From loose lips.
Words open
Secret records
To reveal
The past,
Thatís sold
With swift transition
In open markets
To gullible hunters
Who recycle
Their wares.
Words turn
On evil intent
Like merry-go-rounds,
Round and round
Never stops,
Eagerly consumed.
Words gush
Like polluted rivers
Into corrupt minds.
With swift transition,
Turns innocent
To guilty.
Words make
Malicious grist
To grind
In mills
Of sensationalism
That maximize
With swift transition
The insignificant.
Words sting
Like venom
From a snake
Who hides behind
A cloak of righteousness.

Do not speak evil of one another, brethren (James 4:11 NKJ).

He who speaks truth, declares righteousness (Prov. 12:17 NKJ).
