The Cloth and The Cross ( tribute to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. )

A man of the cloth followed the man on the cross.

The man of the cloth obeyed the man of the cross

Who admonished

“Take up Thy Cross and follow me.”

The man of the cross, in his heart he believed.

Gloriously one day the man of the cloth declared

“I have a dream.”

The man on the cross whispered to him

“in freedom Martin you must always believe.”

The man of the cloth shared the eloquent speech.

The Dream revealed a proclamation of

Freedom, equality, and the justice we

each earnestly today still seek.

His dream changed a nation, inspired the earth.

He was called King, his name blessed by birth.

He was A Man of The Cloth who followed

The Man on The Cross

Humbly obedient in spirit as he carried his

burden cross. Ending his journey with

his dream filled speech he lay down

his Cross at The King of Kings Feet.
