Contend or continue--
The gap in the battle,
The eye of the storm lends
2 square feet of space and quiet

Look and see:
  1. 1)      Follow and fight.
  2. 2)      Fight and don’t follow.

The generations begin to march
Ghostly weapons crowd behind you
The whip cracks, leaves no mark
but you shudder, turn

Follow the Piper of the past.
That’s how you roll
With the Piper’s punches.

Oh! I have no voice, still I shout:
Contend, I can see him!
the Piper’s but a shadow.
Stand. Turn. Be victorious.
