A Standing Haiku for a Standing Kind of Day

For evil to win,

The good need only to sit,

For evil is rare.

And they, looking on,

Say what and why shall we fight

The smallest of cares?

But the few it hurts,

Stand up quick from sudden pain,

Look back on soft chairs.

They try to explain

To all the comfortable crowds

That they, if they care

Can fight evil off

With the simplest of measures:

A message — one share,

A hand extended,

A voice of understanding,

A STAND, if they dare.

Thoughts. About Stuff. On purpose.
