Silent No More

Bobi Leutschaft Poitras c August 28, 2018

Pen on your desk,

Brush on the floor,

Do you have nothing 

To say anymore?

 

Don't move about,

Stay in your lane,

Close up your mind to

A world gone insane.

 

Stick to your bland

Daily routine,

Look far away from

The raging machine.

 

Players will play,

Leaders will lead.

It's our job to just

Shut up and bleed.

 

Open your mouth,

Dare to object.

Credence is taken,

Credentials are checked.

 

Hide behind smiles,

Curtains drawn close.

Inside slowly die;

Uncaring, morose.

 

Pick up the pen,

Brush from the floor.

You have much to say.

Be silent no more.
