Not Before


Say what you will or wont

  but do as you pray


Bleed as you will in the night

  but carry the day


Take as your conscience directs

  but give all you can


Return when the fighting is done

   —but not before then


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2014)


        A Final Amen


Through critical discussion

  he walked in the night


And passed all the doubters

  embracing their fright


After giving it once,

  he gave forever again


For that bigger than him

  —and that final amen


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2014)
