Escaping into verse,
the base of the tower rumbled
the ground beneath was shaken
with new cracks within its walls

Escaping into verse,
all towering deception crumbled
as the self-appointed jumped and fell
landing prostrate, and so small

Escaping into verse,
the mime shouted out enabled
his silent thunder, raining down
with a message now to scald

Escaping into verse,
a new steeple built and stabled
its bell now ringing a lyric toll,
--- death knell to those recalled

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2015)
