AUTHORITY AND FAITH
Autocrats like Alexander and Changez,
Have trampled men beneath their feet,
Not once but hundred times so far,
They brought man down from honoured seat.
The annals right from historic dawn
The message eternal bear as such,
"O man, with insight great endowed,
The wine of might is dangerous much."
Before this quickly flowing flood
That spreads to all the tracts with speed
Art, insight, intellect and science,
Are carried along like straw and reed.
Divorced from Faith, a poison strong,
When propped by Faith and true belief,
'Gainst poison works with speed,
And proves a source of much relief.
