Trimming Sails

He encountered the devil
and is taking a break
from tilting at windmills.

With violence on the rise
he must trim his sails, go
then sit on the side.

He will seek a time of solitude
and refrain from voicing an opinion
and be considered rude

providing motive and cause
to a stressed-out angry multitude.

Oh, he can join a peaceful rally
for a more than worthy cause,

but if it turns violent, he will not dally
and certainly will not pause,

but he will remember
to trim the sails
and sail off into September.
