3 Poets (1985)

I watched a lion in his cage
Pace Serengeties cubed
And saw the gene in every step
That knew about the plain.

I saw a prophet in his cell
Paladin of his Cause
Due to die tomorrow
For killing hell, he thought.

Saw a poet in us all
And shuddered that I felt
Common bond between us
A vision even now.
