    They called him another Mahatma
    For his philosophy was the same
    Non-violence coupled with patience
    Was what the good doctor preached

    Luther was of great determination
    To bring equality to the down-trodden
    But an assassin’s bullet found a mark
    In the divine heart of this disciple

    Men of any breed can vow for him
    And the sincere lessons he taught
    Which was stopped by a little bullet
    Engendering much hate and love

    Once more the satin mahogany hearse moves on
    Corteged by dazzling bouquets and dirges
    Shadowing a wry smile as if to say
    I prefer them when kicking than alive

    Crocodile tears shed now for him
    Are only until the grave is fresh
    Come years weather and words will erode his work
    And maybe he’ll be just a passing memory

    The greatest of greats was the Mahatma Gandhi
    But now his memory is only for respect
    Millions mourned him at home and abroad
    Although his philosophy is smothered by warfare

    Millions also grieved at the loss of King
    Yet they lend not a helping hand
    But a bullet can’t snug out a dream
    A life yes, but a people….never
    And as surely as water flows in a stream
    The fire of Luther lives on forever.
