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)
