The His-Tory By Cecilia Cunningham



Hyde Park Thursday Poets Rally Week 74 (October 4 -October 10)



Perhaps not militant, but true
to their convictions of duty...
Acceptable to the valiant
Americans,
who extend their knowledge
beyond a sea of narrowness.
#
Perhaps not big-mouthed, but with
Tongues seasoned with salt...
Practicing Christmas virtues,
Long before it was fashionable.
#
Perhaps not boastful, but never
in quest of sympathy,
When solving hate problems,
Against encroachments on all people,
Yet always maintaining temperance.
#
Perhaps not what you want, but what
you need...
Equity that has exalted a nation,
Gaining for the people justice and peace.
