Sticks n Carrots

k

forget it

give up

they’re just not worth your precious energy

k

k

I’m talking about those that know, that will not do

long term and short term Truthers

those that claim to be in the Truth movement

forget em

they’re a lost cause

a waste of time

k

k

it doesn’t matter if you use a stick or carrot approach

they won’t move an inch

apart from attending a fun day out demo

they’re locked up

in fear – in apathy

k

k

they sort of care

they occasional get wound up by the agenda

they have a blip moment of intend to do – usually under the influence of alcohol

by it always always gets put on the back burner

I must do, I must get round to doing

one day soon

I should do, I could do

one day soon

k

k

forget em

you’ll just burn out with them

they have a weird set of life priorities

you’ll destroy yourself by having that eternal hope

that one day, maybe one day 

they’ll pull their finger out and do

k

k

perhaps that’s what it’s always been like

throughout history

any levels of dissent

just the 2 or 3 percent

willing to do, willing to risk

willing to speak up against oppression

then the others follow

k

k

but please don’t wind yourself up

expecting or even hoping for one day soon to happen

waiting to see that spark within them

because if they don’t have it now and they never have

then they never will

expend your energy more productively

k

k

because it’s all about caring

really really caring

obsessional caring

outraged caring

righteous indignation caring

compelled to act caring

k

k

no, there is none of this in them

other than rhetoric

because comfortableness has seeped in

routines have developed

attachments have sneaked in

fear and apathy rule their lives

k

k

so please don’t burn out

move on

look for other 2 or 3 percents

they’re out there

lonely, just like you

waiting to connect up

k

k

those that do not need a stick or a carrot

k

k

because they’re just natural doers

k

k
