Poem

There is no talisman stronger
for warding off evil
than the contrite heart
willing to acquiesce to a life of service
building bridges for social justice
and detente
navigating the landmines of politics
dodging F-bombs of apathy
and drone strikes of hate
There is no talisman stronger
for warding off evil
more powerful than carrying the cross
of the oppressed
acknowledging that we all share
the same DNA
