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)
