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
