Things Glorious

Of Christ's magnanimity in uttering
Father, please forgive them
While nails tore through his hands and feet
Of Shiharta Gaotama renouncing his
Luxurious life as a prince to suffer in the wild
An ascetic seeking for the truth
Of Moses who gave up all comforts in
Pharoah's care to wander for forty years
In the harsh desert leading a querulous
People to the Promised Land
Of Prophet Mohammad's decision to give up
His unharrassed life to fight for his
Belief despite an illiterate background
Of venerated Mandarin governor Confucius
Turnning back on a a corrupt court
To bring his ideas of right governance
To the people on his own
Of the people who use the teachings of
These men to benefit the world
