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
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.
