Discordant

What shall we do?

Act from conscience?

Or give in to acceptance?

 

We can pluck the harp string of

right and wrong and strike a note

discordant to the civilised ears.

 

Or we can let it ring in the wind that

blows from trouble and hear it distant

and give polite and quiet applause.

 

What shall we do my friends who seek

a better world? Shall we strike the

notes together or comfortably ignore?
