People of Honor

Not on battlefields strewn red,
Not in exploration overhead,
Not in elected bodies august,
Not in corporate offices just,
Not in church pews or at alters,
Not in movements’ salters,
Not in institutions of learning,
Not in science labs churning,
But everywhere, the simple reality,
Lives within a human personality,
That treats all in clear same fashion,
Rich, smart or poor, there is one passion,
People of honor live lives in quest,
Of ways to serve the whole the best.
