Paraphrased is a statement that I made on 10 12 2011 from the lectern at a weekly meeting of a men’s group whose goals are spiritual in nature.
I believe that The Will of Everything in the Natural World including Man is in fact the Will of God expressed through the Arms and Legs and Wings of the World as we know it.
I was booed and voices shouted out demanding that I be seated.
I returned to my seat.
I went home and rhymed myself a poem.
I posted my poem on the Internet the following Sunday.
I present it once again here today on a newer blog site with improved punctuation.
This wasn’t a first for me, Oh no; I’ve been booed before.
But boo they did and if again I deign to take the floor
I’ll bare my soul and quote no page
But those on which I write.
And right or wrong, I’ll live my life
Directed toward The Light.
I choose to be the Tortoise. The World can be my Hare.
Whatever it takes to be myself is all I have to share.
So round them up my brothers, practice till you soar.
Consensus is the plan it seems,
For those whose plans are merely schemes
And Might is Right (it’s done in teams)
I’ve heard the Lion’s Roar.
