Verbal Crusade

The newly armed Prophet,

his heart beating strong


An old disarmed Sage,

living futile and long


If words could bring victory,

the benign would then reign


But vows must be forged

 with steel edges of pain


Intentions when noble,

bearing witness to fact


That for change to bring truth

—must the wise man attack


(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2020)
