I’m a Poet….
  don’t try to trap me with words
  or with logic you don’t understand

With your barrister’s training
  you’re out of your league

In some ways
  I’ve already said it all
  but never in the form you approve

Or with comforting platitudes
  lining your shell
  as pontification behooves

The slick easy answers
  unfit for a Sage
  but the pundit and liars attest

My message as spoken
  comes at great cost
  —your conscience never to rest

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2018)
