He Faces His Fate

Written by John : March 11, 2008

Is what we’re looking for
Just another empty promise?
A house full of stuff
But without any love,
A good idea
But poorly executed,
A good execution
Of an ill-conceived plan?
Or is it trust in a man
Whose earth tones
And bracket status
Whose accent
And point of origin
Tighten the noose
Of civil religion
He faces his fate
With bilingual grace
Unknown in these parts.
