Poem By Ima Ryma
Liviu Libescu is his name.
During his 76 years,
He did not have fortune or fame,
But knew times of terrors and tears.
He survived a Nazi slave camp
And escaped a Communist slay.
Lady Liberty's lighted lamp
Brought him to the U.S. of A.
To lecture at Virginia Tech,
Where he was in his filled classroom,
Invaded by a human wreck,
Intent on inflicting mass doom.
He died blocking the killer's crime,
To give his student's saving time.
