The pen is mightier than the sword,
said he who had not felt the cold of steel.
To hold a pen is to be at war,
said he in fervent zeal.
Yet among matters of mice and men,
It is but the sins of our Fathers,
which we daily defend.
Let us bear witness,
for our beliefs they must be chartered,
when the ink of our scholars,
dries holier than blood of martyrs.
