A Great Man Unknown.


It is about a man

simple and smart

dignified and gentle

well dressed and stylish

honest and earnest

I would call him great

as I love his charisma

admire his etiquette

adore his integrity

like his speech

many would not go with me

have a penchant for ostentation

an inclination for vanity

a wish for authority

would equate him to an ordinary

would not vote for him in elections

would not care to respect him

would not  present an award

he would as most of us

live unknown and unseen

die unhonoured and unlamented.
