POETRY by Dionisios

INSTEAD OF
(circa 1966-67)

Instead of, yes, instead of, that's what you did!

You built monuments ----------- instead of ---------
You organized in haste -------- instead of ----------
You plundered and murdered ---- instead of -----
Contradicted and split -------- instead of -----------
Threatened mankind ------------ instead of --------
You tortured and enslaved ----- instead of --------
You preached and lied --------- instead of----------

Yea we now stand addressed, redressed, and asked to pay
with tortured minds and souls to diabolic men
who covet all your instead ofs and asked for and receive
from some, the altered sacrifice of god
such is the payment asked for with all your instead ofs
never, never, shall or can we yield to you or they
for we have been, are, and will be ----- the instead ofs


GALLANT DAYS

Oh gallant day, how you strut across my soul
In mellow breaths of splendid colors
Which flick across the heavens as I viewed
Your fingers reaching for the stars, and with subliminal care
You gently quench their sparkling love one by one
And then as all but few radiate in God's grace
You thrust the dawn and awaken us one and all


THE SHOEMAKER

Whumf!! The mighty hammer strikes!
And with each stroke a nail is passed
through sole and heel of many a walking shoe
Some are small and delicate of maiden's foot
Others rough and tough of worker's boot
But oh the arm of the man who worked each day through
in mighty majesty did it ring -- Whumf!! Whumf!! Whumf!!


CUM LAUDE

Cum laude, with honors she shines today
A little girl to be remembered by those who love her
One who fought and struggled hard and won
A precious victory for herself -- a single step
Not without pain and tears and heartbreak
And yet surrounded by love and caring she won
Yes, she pushed aside all impediments and won
A precious victory for herself -- a single step
And now she knows of what struggle is made
to fight, to conquer -- to learn -- to win
And, yet, has kept her charm and warmth and love
A precious victory for herself -- a single step
