What's Good Poem by Richard Randolph

What's Good



A good deal is one in which everyone wins.
A good game is one that all the players enjoy.
A good country is one that takes care of its poor.
A good life is one rich in both sorrow and joy.

A good job is one that allows you to do what you love
while challenging you to constantly get better.
A good family is a group of people
who love each other no matter what-forever.

Good trouble, as John Lewis called it,
means we can't just accept the status quo.
We have to challenge injustice wherever we find it,
though we'll likely be called wicked for doing so.

Being good is a bear, being good is quite tough,
just trying to be good is not good enough.
We have to think, and then rethink, just what it means,
more often than not, it's not what it seems.
