Poetry isn’t my strong point. I’m more of a news and prose writer. Hell, I write narratives not rhymes. I just wanted to honor a hero of mine.
Holy crap, that rhymed…
“Standing up for what I believe in will always take precedence over whether you like me or not.”
By Hook or by Crook, the Crook’s got some words
inciting anger and petty towards that hairy cur
Don’t care for the bells? Like him or not
like Miranda, he’s not giving up a shot
to do what is right, to use art
to be a hero with words, show off his heart.
They say it’s overrated
speaking for the understated
These heroes are needed to fight
against this world’s anger and plight
They spread that hope and love
Fans are needed when they’re shoved
to push that message out
show what we’re about
that we’re not standing for hate and doubt.
From Leia to Meryl , we must create art
to help heal pain and broken hearts
These are my rhymes, however bad,
to remember the roles my hero has had.
Be smart like Ian
spy for those needin’
strength, pride, and hope
to have a future where they can cope
Be brave like Sir Robin
put away all your sobbin’
for words, pictures, dance,
theatre, songs, and romance
Laugh like Leonidas
(It’s hard to rhyme “Leonidas”)
be silly, bring cheer for a while.
Back to the hero, the man, the light
He’s the one charging words for this fight
Be honest like Sean, most important and truly,
helping less privilege is our duty
We need these great people of all kinds
who aren’t afraid to lay it out on the line
We need Green Wishes from the Hops
Life influencers like the Soch’s
Diversity like Atlanta
Helping kids in the Savanna
with Hiddles UNICEF mantra
Feathered faith like Lana
Disagree with your neighbor?
Have words. Put down your saber
One family. One world.
To destroy each other’s absurd
Listen to this father, listen to this man
Respectfully disagree if you can
Strive to be like Maguire
question the orange storm’s ire
