The Champion of the World

Those who recognize Love  
 are lichen to its presence:    
particularly poverty—  
  a pauper in the dell    
  with a cozy caravan  
poached breakfast    
  and mechanical garage;  
a widower unshaped  
by societal mold  
  and a motherless boy eager to learn    
is all it took to save the world  
  despite unbecoming behavior  
  of a profit monger—  
not the Queen's Guard  
  upholding monarchy rules;  
nor barristers in fancy suits—  
but, a wealth of togetherness  
wearing worn, yet clean clothes
