Great men.

Men of valour, of wit and strength;
they don’t come by often.
Bits of them we find and frame;
they are who we aspire to become.

What is the method?
Who could show us the ropes?
Must we have something within us,
to begin with?

Do we imitate their gestures,
impersonate their voices?
Is it enough to play the role, or
must we truly experience the character?

How do we know
when we’ve made it?
How do we know
whether we’re heading in the┬áright direction?

When will we ever become men of valour, of wit and strength?
