the EFF' word

TheDeckerEdgeMatt Decker

Inked on pages of ages

Quipped from lips of sages -

Easing the brain's pain and grief

Releasing the peace of relief -

Moving hordes toward more and better

Removing their fetters by letters -

Spark in the darkness of night

Reviving the carcass to life -

Wings that bring power of flight

Lift that gifts might to fight -

Hatching feats through history

Snatching from defeat, victory -

Tweak for the weak and rattled

Strength for length of the battle -

Weapon gripped by steppin' warriors

Resource and recourse helpin' worriers -

Conquering monsters and domains

Conjuring honor and acclaim -

Leveling devils and mountains

Opening hope like fountains -

Propelling the failing across

The tempest-tossed waters of loss -

Popping bubbles and trouble formed

By endeavors never performed -

The ever better clever letters

Of a thing we name EFFort.
