Communication - Poem by Egal Bohen

Speak out while you are here
For we are listening
We have not come to pass the time of day
As you might say
But wait upon your offering
Speak out while you are here
Speak out
For if your thoughts unto yourself you keep
The world may weep
And people here
And people there
And people everywhere
Will more misguided come
So do not hold your tongue
Speak out
Let us have some variation on the theme
Speak freely
Not thoughts you think we like to hear
But thoughts that sear and form and grow!
To change
Change our cluttered cramped ideas
Speak out
For that is why you are here
