Kennedy and Caesar

Caesar's lofty message:
Veni, Vidi, Vici:
I came, I saw, I conquered.
Pharnaces, king of Pontus,
To Caesar lost the Race.

The sovereign of the Space Age
In dire silence uttered:
Veni, Vidi, Vici:
Before Kennedy's light,
Ignorance, the prince of Doom,
The frown of eyeless Night,
Covered in shame his face.
Sri Chinmoy, Kennedy: The Universal Heart, Aum Press, Puerto Rico, 1973
