The Purpose of Eagles~by Paul F. Lenzi



The Purpose of Eagles


Image from

voluble opinions

majestically engaged

elemental important

conversation of raptors

fierce cadre of symbols

at roost in their caucus

debate ontological truths

of a sovereign homeland

intelligent eyes who’ve

seen trouble abroad

fearless hearts stirred

to find brutal beauty

of resolute compromise

powerful capable talons

commit to grave oath

to protect and defend

piercing voices who

clash as they exercise

freedom of speech

the inaugural liberty

warrant of republic
