If He Could Follow
(Roundel Poem)
 
If he could follow light in the tunnel,
Where darkness holds the key to his freedom,
Would he not so gather his courage spell,
If he could follow?
 
Or would he sit, be grumpy like a bum,
Not making any effort, no spinel,
Only fostering lame excuse with rum.
 
Freedom has its price, darkness must he quell,
And like Athena, be ready to drum
This fire of courage to whip Jezebel,
If he could follow.
