Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Apr 07 2011Views/Reads: 1323/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A great thinker, Anicius Boethius wrote one of the greatest books in Medieval times while awaiting his own execution...

'Consolation Philosophy' 

And with it 

The prophecy 

Your fate 

Is your making 

In a time 

Of autocracy 

Boethius the wise 

One who answered 

All questions 

A time when He spoke 

But barely took actions 

Does God control me 

Or merely observe 

Am I of myself 

Or am I to serve 

What making of man 

Provide good and evil 

Will time yield the answer 

Or be it medieval 

I can't see the light 

But can we see now 

The thinker in jail 

Did all to show how 

A torch that he passed 

In thought ever-lit 

We must pass it down 

To all benefit
