Hey Mike,
I dont think He's saying he Speakes a thousand languages, What he's saying
is that He Speaks, As in "a picture holds a thousand words", Same premes,
Just that he speaks And He cant seem to Make truth of what he speaks,
thought he tries. Thats my thoughts.

mouth so sorry to be smart alleck.it was a verry cool poem. God bless you

I rather like this poem in particular against the rest of his work that i
have read. He claims to speak 1000 languages and all but one lie. Lying
can come in MANY forms but truth can only come in one. hence the 999 lying
tongues and the one, singular one that speaks only truth...but is dead to
his mouth
