COURAGE

For Sunday Scribblings
And Monday Poetry Train Revisited


UNCOMMON VALOUR

To unsung heroes everywhere
Who did something they’d like to think
Somebody else would do for them

Not the way the cookie crumbles…

A selfless act of bravery
Provokes the hero’s modest words
‘It was only a reaction’
‘Anyone would have done the same’

On reflection, hindsight suggests
Those apathetic bystanders
Reacted like anyone would
And Courage… someone else’s job
