Pillar

I know you believe you understand what you think I said
But
I’m not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant.

~Robert Grant~


It’s quite unclear what makes a man
that others follow if they can
what circumstance or hidden trait
endows him with that certain gait
which clearly speaks to anyone
intent on getting something done
they absolutely can’t afford
to not have this one strut on board.

Very well said... the scary part being that Hitler was just such a man! Yikes! It seems to be more about charisma that anything else in most cases.

What a message in this poem...it is a frightening thought that people can be so easily swayed. That is why we should be more informed and know our history. Great poem Bob...thank you for sharing it! :-)

Hi Shirley and Carrie, while it's true that people like that should be avoided, this is a tribute to a solid guy :)
