Ring True

Talk is cheap, Mother Fucker!

So are these words, lacking.

Yet if we do not know them to be true

is not their context irrelevant? Pointless? Even trifling?

These wrongs you spit with no elegance,

sadly, always ring true.

Is not the vulgar as poignant as the subtle?

Isn’t context important anymore?

It may mean nothing,

but even in dated lyrics,

and disputed parlimentary procedure,

ring true.
