With friends like these

Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.*
  — Rudyard Kipling

With friends like these
       (please-ing, tease-ing, appease-ing, defease-ing, ...,
        fleece-ing, freeze-ing, seize-ing, release-ing, ...)
who needs mortal enemies
or recreational pharmacies?

Words are the keys
that unlock humanity's
unspoken pleas.
