The Potomac - Poetry and Politics
December 2006 - THE POTOMAC



The Emperor's Old Clothes
   Laurence Overmire

Constantine
Fearing
His absolute power threatened
Murdered
His wife and son
Conveniently
With the swipe of an
Outstretched
Finger:
The Christian Emperor
Whose shining example
Struck upon the mind
With the force of a conquering
Visionary
Lorded upon generations of
Wide-eyed children
Unquestioning
Belief in the right of
Divine Earthly
Kings.
