Voice Lessons

I’ve heard there’s nothing like the human voice –
no instrument can equal our full range.
But power comes with room to make a choice
about your tone of speech. Let’s not estrange
the sound of conversation from rejoice
and warm to cold belligerence. Exchange
that tune of bitter, discontent, or rue
for courtesy, and I’ll attempt it, too.

(Ottava Rima)
