Triolet to Duty

 

 

 

 

He did the duty that he had to do—

But greatness doesn’t come about that way.

His clear and certain failures?  They were few.

He did the duty that he had to do.

Beyond that line, he didn’t have a clue—

And his survivors don’t have much to say.

He did the duty that he had to do.

But greatness doesn’t come about that way.
