Sancho and Ishmael



~~~

Ahab had his whale

And La Mancha its dragons

Exquisite in the tale

There, the root of man

Born on steed and sail

~~~

Ne’er the fantasy

And much more than fable

Written history

Of protagonist pursuits

Man, no mystery

~~~

Fear the foe of fail

We tilt at our windmills

Weather every gale

Each has a destiny and

Each his holy grail

~~~
