All That Glitters Is Gold - Poem by Lawrence P. Murren, Jr.

Beneath the surface
Hemingway wrote
The iceberg the iceberg
See the iceberg float
What's beneath the surface
Is it on a silver platter
You won't figure this out
Until you climb the ladder
Speak in tongues down below
Hear the howling winds blow
