A two bleacher hurrah for John Lewis

On Southern soil I rarely tread

Once there, I heard the bark

Go away Damn Yankee

And then the voice of reason

I sit and hear of a great Lewis

Gone, voice no more

To fill the void of what’s right

To understand, accept

Yes, Black and White

Only when we bond, unite

Will sorrow and peace prevail

Their true intent, his inner meaning

How in the depths of death

The thought of loss

Can we go forward

Can we review

A softer side to humanity

To acceptance of you and me

Then and only then

Will he rest in peace

Lest forgive the rest of us

Till we attempt to mend our ways

Without his wisdom, his voice

A touch of reason, a path well chosen

A John Lewis way to go

Rest softly gentle soul

Please point from your grave

The right path, thank you

Thank you Curtis for honoring a most unusual human being. Remembering the admonition that "All men are created equal", is not just a saying, but a way of life we should all follow.

Hello Curtis,  I do believe you wrote this. Either way, thank you for posting. 

May John Lewis rest in peace. 80 seems too young to die.
