Lawrence S. Pertillar

Quieted Lips

At one time,
He was rumored to be unqualified.
Not only is he qualified...
He puts others to shame.
With an intelligence,
They can not pay for...
Or claim.

And the more he and his name is known...
Many show,
They can not bow their heads
Low enough!

We are in the presence,
Of a high intelligence.
And this experience has quieted lips.
With the acceptance of those,
Who are aware of his higher consciousness.
