THE TRUE GUIDE
The sedent nations of the East,
Or active dwellers of the West ;
Are inmates of such dungeons that
Were built by them with zeal and zest.
The priests who guide the Christian church,
And Elders who maintain the Shrine,
Lack newness of discourse and speech,
Bereft are they of actions fine.
Experts in statecraft practise still
The same antique guile and wily tricks
No flights of fancy the bard can claim
To ideals low and mean he sticks.
It is time that expected Guide
May soon appear oil worldly stage
His piercing glance in realm of thought
Would cause a violent storm to rage.
