Sonnet: To Those Who Rush to Praise Us

To those who rush to praise us when we say
they should do what is right in their own eyes.
All men or women having their own way
to live precisely as they would surmise.

To those who laud our liberality,
our tolerance of every faith, and creed,
and every sexual proclivity,
we ask the same consideration cede.

Each man the lord and master of his home.
This is the view we fervently avow.
If he be familièd or live alone;
at this they gnash their teeth and knit their brow.

The warrior knows how to deal with these,
who finally prove impossible to please

About Louis William Rose

I seek no office other than the office of parliamentarian, and no reward other than for myself and my fellow men and women to live in a free country.” Louis William Rose is a lifelong student of parliamentary procedure and political process. He has served as parliamentarian for various organizations. A political philosopher, poet, singer, and writer, his articles have been published on-line and in pro-liberty papers in Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, and Montana. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of North Florida, graduating summa cum laude in 2004, with an additional two years of graduate work in political philosophy. Mr. Rose is an outspoken supporter of the basic rights of man, especially freedom of speech, association, religion, individual rights to personal defense and property, and of republican, constitutional forms of government.
