Socialist Stanza No. 2

Statue of Limitation


Set high upon a lofty plinth

From flawless marble fashioned,

A great libertarian stands,

An advocate impassioned


By the ideal of tongues being free

To speak at will, unrestrained,

Brooking no dark despotic moves

Towards having words detained.


This patrician rhetorician

Raised in the free market place,

For all his lofty appearance,

He’s a second, hidden face


That looks in favour of free speech

And open democracy,

“Unless,” his cold eyes seem to say,

“You dare to contradict me!”


D. A.
