'Pitch' is an analysis of three speeches from three politicians at the onset of war. I have concentrated on rhetorical linguistic ploys used to inculcate certain emotive words and phrases in our minds. Their language blinds us and as a result we agree to the decisions made on our behalf unaware of their catastrophic outcomes.The words have undergone a tortuous process; examined, dissected and eventually pitched on copper wire. As part of a body of text, the words have strength in numbers, but now isolated, they are vulnerable, manipulated by the unpredictability of the wire.
