"Raining On Lions"
Once upon a brazen age,
Snakes were crawling on the stage of grit;
And the halcyon days were raining on lions,
Galvanizing Daniel's pit...
Go home, Sage,
Said Babylon's king in a reigning fit,
Your flesh would serve my giants
But for your God's writ!
—Dedicated to father on his birthday.
