Short story & Flash Fiction

I hold no gun ….

I hold no gun or cannon,
tho’ its pointed nozzle
is deadly – more lethal.
Its din echoing the human speech
lays conquest tyrants n’ emperors,
liberating captives n’ frozen minds.
It challenges the authority of regimes
n’ the ignorance of religion n’ tradition.
I hold no gun or cannon,
but a pen.
