What Kind Of Man

An ode to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. What kind of man would set his life aside
simpy let his personal plans ride,
to give a needed and a helping hand -
to the hurting people in his troubled land? What kind of man although shedding a tear
at the sight of injustice brutality and fear
caused a noble nation to realize -
that only peaceful resistance coud win the prize. What kind of man although beaten and jailed,
and denied his right to simply post his bail
would still kneel and pray
