    Neutrality is a myth embraced by the weak and cowardly
    And like not quite warm or cold water, it is best suited for mouth fodder alone.
    Not every fight is or should be yours
    But when you can and you do not
    Because the fight is just to hot
    And the consequence of an unpopular position
    Might lead to your termination or alienation
    Like it or not strength of character you forgot
    And don’t quote me some edicts of piety
    For such a time as this you have been created and positioned
    And if not you
    here and now
    Who
    and
    When
    Don’t just pray about it
    Be about it

    The revolution will not be televised, they say. So those watching won't know when to stand up and be about it. Wallflowers...
