Dedicated to Zhu Yufu

by Alan S. Kleiman

What courage can a man have?
Why struggle
Why face prison
Life is short
Prison long
Why find guts to scream
With a jailor sitting in the next pew

Righteousness rightness guiding light
Over family
Over home
Over comfort
Let freedom speak
To change the day
Let freedom speak
I wonder why.

Not as brave or right
I only admire
And thank.

  2. We all have to stand up when the time comes. He's a beacon of courage.
