Day Three – “Freybug”
“Be not afraid of fray-bugs which lie in
the way.” so English martyr describes me
1555. I’m a frightening
obstacle to overcome. Popery
railed against, authority imprisoned
him, requested he recant, he refused.
They ordered him burnt He welcomed
hugged stake said it was cross of Christ. And loosed,
” Welcome Everlasting life!” Not afraid
of me when he met me in various
ways. Burnt February of year he made
mention of me his words always pious.
Some say I’m reason, today’s way who blocks
fanaticism, shows easy paths plot.
