Chain of Power

people-844213_1920.jpg

What if the sage and the fool shared

the same status after evaluating rank

and experience shared over a lifetime

 

Mirrored missteps measure years

weighed in the balance of wins and losses

Each gifted with a simple voice sprouting

a unique blend of wisdom and regret

 

Is this the secret to the chain of power?

 

Each press hands together in humble prayer

a story of what was and what may be

weighed in the balance of sacrifices —

tailored tips in a mixed bag of tricks

 

What if the sage and the fool shared

the same soul after excoriating measurements

and milestones meant to define a lifetime
