O Sancta Simplicitas!

Sancta simplicitas! Simplicity
Holy, quiet, resolute.  When trials
Rise hot before me, fiery.  Or while
Accusations made with duplicity
Seek to question my authenticity
And, lacking truth, substitute vicious guile
Claim devotion as nothing more than vile
Heresy. Love as base felicity
Will I stand as Huss chained to the column
Singing hymns and looking to his Savior
Certain of a comfort that’s eternal?
Or will my heart fail before a solemn
Momentary fate and choose behavior
Trading a divine end for infernal?
