Tracks of a Wandering Mind

Poetry, stories and random thoughts from a wandering mind.

What Am I?

Just a simple little riddle πŸ™‚ (Put your guess in the comments – if you have one.)

Simple in structure and concept,
Singular in design,
Able to set forth a precept,
That stands the test of time.

Felling nations both great and small,
With but a simple stroke,
Yet whose same move can then install
A reign of tyrant’s yoke.

The words of Paul of Tarsus lost,
The knowledge of the greats,
The poetries of all time gone,
But for this speaking stake.

Able to invest a nation
And great fortune bring,
Such a triumph of creation!
Now what could be this thing?
