So what do think?
You can just sit back?
Ride along like a passenger
Of everybody else’s sacrifices,
Ride along on the coat tails of those greats
Without making a sound
Not wishing to create,
Just tagging along
To take the plaudits at the end,
To be the last man standing by keeping your head down,
Taking no risks yet sounding so profound,
Do you really think humanity or this world
Can be saved without your words,
Without your inspiration
That is quite absurd,
Do you think as a passenger
There would be no fare for the ride,
No price to pay did you think it would be fine.
Well my friend though we are glad you came along,
Please feel free to participate
Through word, poem or song,
Just make your thoughts known however you can,
And show that finally you are willing to make a stand.
