I have laid down
the sword of youth,
and picked up
the double edged pen.
From my Ivory tower
I have no need to
sally forth into battle,
but cast aspersions
while I await the
sharp tongues of
Critics
eager to usher me
to the guillotine,
and from the basket,
dip their quill
to inscribe my
Epitaph
in life’s ledger,
Balance paid.
