A Sonnet

To the Self-Appointed Ill-Will Ambassador to Islam

 

Who dares to speak must also give his ear

To admonition, for 'tis rarer in

This dismal age to have a saint appear

Than e'er it was, and whoso might begin

To think himself beyond reproach will find

His ev'ry utterance upon the scales.

Therefore, it would be wise to bear in mind

That unabashèd slander never fails

To bring a swift and righteous judgment down

On him who gives it voice; and it is plain

To see that infamy - the scoundrel's crown -

Alone survives when naught else shall remain.

The surest safeguard 'gainst any complaint

Is simple practice of mature restraint.

 

-          T. F. Josephus, Jr.
