Rejoice

I wish to start

Rejoicing

Except for the nagging

Second thoughts

 

After the party is over

Death remains defiant

Taxes retain their titles

 

The poor keep priming

For privation

The rich keep reaching

For rapacity

 

News of maladies

Marooning

Our movements

 

The bills refuse

To take a break

The clash of the campaigners

Curtail our crusade

 

I want to start

Rejoicing

Except for the second thoughts

 

Nagging

That only

You and I

Will change

    1. You have suddenly thrust
      Greatness upon me
      It’s a heavy armour
      But I will not be afraid
      To dare to strive
      To bear it
      Even if only for this
      Moment
      I will wear the shield
      Even if only for this
      Moment
      For great are those
      Who perceive greatness
      In the Little things

  1. Where that came from? … Your asking yourself? … Here the answer … Cyril Barry Knowles (13 July 1944 – 30 August 1991) was a footballer who played full-back for Tottenham Hotspur and England. He was the brother of fellow professional footballer Peter Knowles.[1] He died of cancer on 30 August 1991 aged 47.
