Them As Has No Voice.

Poetry By: ladygothicka

The last line comes from the Terry Pratchett novel "The Wee Free Men", and I just wrote a poem based round that. Enjoy.

Someone has to fight
to keep the lanterns burning.
Someone has to love
without anything in return.
Someone has to care
for those in desperate need.
Someone has to want
to make another happy.
Someone has to stand up
for the meek and the frightened.
Someone has to be there
come rain or shine, frost or sun.
Someone has to remember
the teachings of Jesus.
Someone has to march out
for what is fair and just.
Someone has to speak
for them as has no voice.
