Playing The Hero! - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Stabbed three times he was, I heard
Left alone on the streets as he bled
He died a certain death before he could wed
But who hasn’t got word of this before!
These individual souls are hardcore

They both got life imprisonment
Hardly showing any resentment
For ridding a man with a portfolio of achievements
Who supplemented life each moment with maven judgment!

To him, I wish I could say
Hello, Hello, Yo! Yo! Yo!
Don't play a hero by bequeathing behind a widow
Don't play a hero inducing to all enough sorrow
Don't play a hero by reducing your own life to zero!

Twenty dollars and a wallet were acquired!
Little or no resistance was required
Now a gentle life has expired
Bringing tears to those who he inspired

If you find yourself in a situation
Without hesitation, do not fall into temptation, avoid devastation
Don't play a hero, surrender your ego
Don't play a hero, there is always tomorrow
Don't play a hero by reducing your own life to zero!
If you do, your loved ones may be dealt a heavier blow
