THE MORTAL AND IMMORTAL
Dared to defy an unjust edict,
the servant of God was blessed.
Dare to defy an unjust verdict,
the servant of man was jailed.
With love and compassion,
power of healing from heaven, showers,
With no fear to face prison,
power of people against corruption, confers.
Canonized a saint by believers,
a valentine day celebrates by lovers.
Martyrized as a hero by followers,
a movement day to gather banners.
The priest is dead, still remembered,
The man is alive, spirit well honored.
