Front Row Seat

No one follows the unsung.

The rut in the road

wasn’t cut

by the wheels of change.

Maybe one chair in the room

squirms at the lie,

whispers in the hall,

alerts the ear.

And then, two, or more,

gathered together

like found coins,

add value to conviction.

Maybe it’s Congress,

maybe it’s church,

the truth only sets you free

as you speak.
