Hail to the Pen

By Rob Morris

Hail To The Pen! the day is past,
When man is governed by the sword
There is a principle abroad
Greater than bayonet or the cannon's blast.

Hail To The Pen! the skillful Scribe
Wields it, a scepter, o'er the world
From thrones of darkness it has hurled
The despot, spite of threatening and bribe.

Hail To The Pen! perennial youth
And power be with the hand that wields,
Drawn from a Fount divine that yields
Impartial Justice and unbiased Truth.

Hail To The Pen! and hail to you,
Illustrious Friend, whose pen has taught
How light and truth may be inwrought,
And History writ that to all time is true.

© 2017 The Ashlar Company “Hello!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you both for the rapid shipping and delivery of my order, but also for the high quality product.... then symbols pen I purchased for my boss was exquisite and the craftsmanship was very impressive.

When I presented the pen to my boss this morning - his eyes lit up like a little boy, and no sooner than he was able to say thank you to me, he was dashing around the office showing the pen off to his lodge brothers who also work at our company.

Thank you again for the wonderful product and quick shipping! ” Mrs Katrina, Dallas, PA
