Martyrs & Clowns

What is forgotten

if time is a bluff


What is forsaken

if memory can rust


Where is the drama

the stage ill disposed


Where is tomorrow

today undisclosed


When were you certain

that certain you’re not


When did the hands

stop advancing your clock


How many seasons

must come and then go


How many reasons

to plant and not sow


Why search for glory

in legends unfound


Why only answered

—by martyrs and clowns
