Yet we strive with all our might
To prove that only our Gods right

And of the others there’s no doubt

All religion beneath the sun

Powerful Pens

The pen is greater than the sword or so it’s often said.
A poet’s word still stirs the heart long after he is dead.

We all felt sorry for the man with lace bunched at his throat.
Omar Khayyam’s finger writes and having writ moves on.
But still his clever verse delights long after he has gone.
