--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

One

who like Ghandi

will live in free hearts

forever.

 

One

who like Martin King

forgave his tormentors

forward.

 

One

who shunned personal

glory and fame

for life.

 

One

who showed humility

in the face of glory

for gain.

 

One

who dined and talked

with leaders of the world

for forgiveness.

 

One

who will be cherished

for what he accomplished and

for what he was.

 

And now, the political, phony

condors will gather to glean

bits of glory for imaginary

accomplishments.

 

I weep for our TV world.

 

R.I.P. President Mandela

Truly a great human, and a fitting reflection.
