The acid test

The acid test

Let the record state
            that there was love
true and honest
            and deep and full
of kindness
            and that steps
were taken
            to defend that life
against all adversity
            but words of promise
of commitment
            to commonwealth
to shared purpose
            are as nothing
until they are proved
            upon the pulse

John Lyons
