Stand Up Or Be Randomed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stand up or be randomed,
If there is a wish...
One desires to have recognized,
To bring upon an attention...
One who speaks,
Refuses to have dismissed.

People of today,
Have tossed out those whispers.
Speaking up may offend!
But getting one's point across,
Eventually will get...
Others to listen.

Stand up or be randomed.
Speak out or sit.
But don't annoy as you fidget,
Thinking someone will notice it!
Stand up or be randomed.
Or sit in an expected quietness.
