There Comes A Time - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

There comes a time where compromise
is seen as self-defeating trap,
when credibiltity gap supplies
hard evidence who takes the rap
is he or she who'd temporise
accepting daily mental slap
can look no longer through truth's eyes,
keeps revolution under wrap.

That time is present tense so take
in hand decisions, no mistake
make: it is best in any guise
to rise wise than fall with fool's cap.
