The Favor of Giants


When the voice of giants rumble

across the land and the sea,

shaking the timbers of trestles

rattling leaves from the trees,

men will quit their labors and listen

to foolish folly and fables.

Yet when the small voice of truth

is but a crumb fallen from their table.

Truth gently comes to their ears,

like a mosquito to be swatted away,

but the giant’s voice is loudly

present in their mind every day.

So they go about their life

happy in their daily labor

ever searching to find only

themselves in the giant’s favor.

The folly of man is long

passed to their sons in succession,

while the sit and quietly complain

of their eternal oppression.
