Bonhoeffer, foremost a pastor,
Pledged allegiance to only one Master.
His actions proved every abstract word
and his sacrificed life insured they were heard.

Day Fourteen:  Write a clerihew. This is a four line poem biographical poem that satirizes a famous person.

I am currently reading  Bonhoeffer   Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy  and so have been thinking about Diedrich Bonhoeffer quite a bit of late.
While this poem is in technical sense a clerihew, it does not satirise the man, and therefore falls short of the “assignment.”
