The Main Event
“But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep.”
With rumors of the Promised Land,
The crowds compressed the great grandstand.
Who wants to miss
Loud celebration in demand?
The country waits with breath on hold;
Is this one worth his weight in gold?
No simple clown
Could wear such crown,
By sensible bystanders told.
If I had time to hit my knees,
‘Mid phantoms, shadows – “Mercy, please!”
I’d ask the Lord,
To stop the sword.
And storm of controversy ease.
The road ahead is yet unfurled,
As to the future, we are hurled.
We watch and pray
For all who lead in troubled world.
