The Dwellings of Authentic Men

By July 9, 2007One Comment

No hook or rack can e’er be found
In the dwellings of authentic men
On which to hang the coats and cloaks
Of title, fame, and position

But once inside you’ll here men chide
“Drop coat and stay awhile.
No need to cover and encumber your soul
With a thing so heavy and vile.”

“For the heat and kindle of manly strength,”
Will pipe another from a bearded grin,
“Comes not from the garb one wears about,
but from the heart within.”

    And truly, any man who is honest with his own heart, is craving the removal of that coat and the revelation of his own soul to those who will love him.
