Troubadour

Descended from a clan,

who were from the land,

of origin

Of the troubadour

The lands

of Catalan

Of

of Piedmont

of Provence

of the entire

south of France

Land of the Grail

Land of the bard

of Sephardic jews

and heresy Cathar

Home of the Pirate

and the barbary corsair

of the dashing swashbuckler

and the maiden fair

Ballads and theater

chivalry and science

all flourished here

as did defiance

defiance of church

defiance of state

defiance of Caste

defiance of hate

defy the power

defy the corrupt

on blood of kings

Hungrily they supped

Love of Passion

of reason

and science

uncowed

unbowed

unable to

silence.
