In Iambic Octameter

originally published 5/7/11

Embrace ye not the deceivers
And pay the liar no homage;
Tear off the linsey-woolsey suits
Of the sheep’s clothing worn by wolves.

Milquetoasts take warmth and soft comfort
In lives of quick and sure safety;
But heroes do not hesitate
To pay Freedom's steep, hoary price.

Friends, citizens and countrymen,
The moment of truth approaches:
On that day's dark, awful dawning,
Which way do you think you will choose?

The definition of SCION

  • a detached living portion of a plant (as a bud or a shoot) joined aerially to a graft
  • aristocratic descendent
    • scion of a railroad empire

Merely some fractured fairy tale?
Or could it mean something much more?
See for yourselves, and then discern.

They always go green in the end.
