A Hero and A Great Man

We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office - Aesop

They say knowledge is power. Power walks with ambition. Ambition will devour A man without vision.

Through a turbid town, A great man walks. Through a troubled town, A great man talks.

He tells tales of bravery. On attention he feeds. With speech most savory He boasts of great deeds.

He is well respected. He enjoys much recognition. He hopes to be selected For a prestigious position.

He likes to be seen. He likes to be heard. When he is on the scene, He fills the air with word. _________________________________________________________________

As greatness is a need This need is his fate. He is as great indeed, As his need to feel great.

One day as he was walking, He happened to overhear Two girls that were talking. He turned his curious ear.

As their words he overheard, He felt his aid was required. Always attracted to the spoken word To the girls he inquired,

Why do you girls carry on In such a vociferous way? To you my attention is drawn Upon this beautiful day!!!

And to him the him girls inquired, Where does the sun go at night? He knew an answer was required. But he knew not what was right.

Where it goes, he could not say As he covertly looked about. Being a master of delay, He calmly searched for an out.

A man was passing by And overheard this conversation. He thought he could supply, A goodly explanation. _________________________________________________________________

Details of this man are unknown For he lived a life withdrawn. He prefers to be quiet and alone. A common life he has forgone.

You see, he was not like you and me. His methods were strange and new. A different world his eyes would see. A world in which others would have no clue.

Despite his odd looks. He is more then he appears. He has read many books, Yet still wet behind the ears.

Every culture to its own will conform. The mind of the crowd is a shallow creek. As this man was far from the norm, He was seen by the people as a freak.
