We traffic in symbolism
Load meaning like freight
To ship down ruled lines
Or air over tracks.
A string of words can
Outperform an action
That seeks to convey
The mood of a people
For no act can be repeated
As a song is sung.
We trade in significance
Play up sentiments
To remind those who listen
Of the sound of their voice.
