Greatest Truth

GREATEST TRUTH or AGE-OLD ADAGE or THE PEN AND THE SWORD
The sword gleams in the night
A symbol of great might
Leads by bringing in fear
Threatens lives of those dear
An age-old adage
Used since times beginning
The pen is mightier than the sword
Earth’s greatest truth
The pen lies in the hand
Embodies the free land
Words strike the chords within
Silently a large din
CHORUS
Swords ripping things apart
Pens writing on the heart
The sword sheds bright red blood
The pen slings gross dark mud
CHORUS
The sword swings through the air
The pen strikes from its lair
The sword kills the writer
The pen’s words wound the fighter
CHORUS
The sword’s acts die with it
The pen’s work lives past it
The sword rends things in twain
The pen unites again
CHORUS
The sword is used for brawn 
The pen acts as its Don
Both items will be lost
One’s legacy embossed
CHORUS (2x)
