There comes a time
when a duck is a duck and what you see is what you get.
There comes a time
when heat tells us we don’t need smoke to see the fire.
There comes a time
when taking the high road outclasses showing our squaller.
There comes a time
when what we stand for doesn’t mean walking a wire.
There comes a time.
For justice. For equality. For liberty. For what’s right.
