The inspiration lines I choose for this prompt are quotes by George Orwell

Quote 1

 If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.

If I am going round in circles, I will never reach the destination. Straightening the line will help.

If I am in a bottomless pit, I will keep falling, but a leg up, or somebody having my back will help.

Quote 2

If people cannot write clearly they cannot think, and if they cannot think well, others will do their thinking for them.

let us

keep them busy

with battles in the air

we will chalk seamless masterplans

to rule

numb minds on guided tracks

virtual becomes real

Differentiate –

is what?

Quote 3

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.


all noble thought

rewrite history with

fictional greatness of mannequins

sell them

redefine heroism

obliterate concepts, so

they can create




And the final one to crown it all

Quote 4

In prose, the worst thing you can do with words is to surrender them.

I find myself inadequate to top the brilliance of this one.
