This Fragile Thing

by Dr. Agonson

This fragile thing
that we call life
it comes and goes
with much strife

The man on horse
and the man on knee
will cry the same prayer
it is down to me

And in his life the man on horse
will ride and take with great force
but the man on knee will sing a song
and say there is a way that’s wrong

Both shall come before one King
both shall see a mighty thing
and how will each one be treated
if not by how they treated the King
