To utter words of grace an impressive art,
and to grasp with feather touch a mind and hold it strong,
a master artisan grips tight the reigns,
and then with mere words to action bring,
elevates this soul to God among men,
a leader with silken voice, and an unbridled power.
It is a blessing this gift of voice, of words touched by heavens vow,
enlisting the hearts of men impassioned by a presence,
a beguiling heart that draws a will to compliance,
in utterance of a plan contrived and delivered,
with an embrace of seduction and righteous conviction.
With promises unlocked from gilded cages,
freedoms song ignites the souls of zealots fast,
and stirs to voice that inner need for atonement,
to join this hallowed chorus of right, and dance this fate,
given by these words of deliverance and solace.
The orator stands tall, melded to his convictions,
his flow of life like a torrent flood, an unstoppable rush,
and each word in design enlivening his devout purpose,
his call of righteous penitence and sacred journeys offered,
to fall with decisive blow, upon all with ears to listen.
Many have come and gone, these deliverers of words,
these masters of will and hearts embrace,
some are angels and the seeds of hope for men,
others, the devil incarnate, the manipulators of human need,
and we in compliance, must recognize the difference.
