The Face of Silence

The face of silence has pursed lips
Reacted to sordid video clips
Inside is still, be still
Outside is all about steely will
The face of silence is deeply wrinkled
An ageless piano gently tinkled
Stillness rippled still
Empty silence to fill
The face of silence is a bore
One unsightly redeye sore
Be still, be still
Staring from my windowsill
The face of silence is no more
Thunderously loud to the core
Be still, take your fill
Deafeningly loud but be still
In the silence
In the emptiness
Thunderous applause
In the stillness
In the void
Explosive sounds
But still
