"Liberty is not the power of doing what we like, but the right of being able to do what we ought."
~Lord Acton


Man in armor,
man in rust,
man who's noble,
man who's not,
man who seeks no glory,
man who seeks only fame,
man who you can trust,
man who knows no shame.

Man in rust,
in the we trust,
man in armor,
we deny thyne armor.


The author's comments:
Why does our culture approve and encourage evil practices that used to be called shameful. Yet anyone who shows the true stripes of righteousness, we tare him down and shame him for it.

Sorry about the inconveineice but in the last stanza line two it should say "thee" not "the", and on line four last word should be "honor" not armor.
