The companion poem to David's Lair
Let me
tell you
something
young man

Be strong
be right
have will
if you can

It takes
so much
to enter
a plan.

ipsedixitism
be damned

A man
needs not
these unsupported
assertions.


It leads
to lack
of faith
desertion

What will
we do
to men
that hurt from

Beliefs
of grief
and cares
to work from

It takes
a lot
to be
successful

It makes
us not
and leaves
us stressful

ipsedixitism
be gone.
