Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

THE FIRE OF INFLUENCE

There is a flame perpetual

That fuels the course of time

It warms the aching heart

And spurs both hate and crime

The machinery behind every war

And every good and noble deed

It moves us to benevolence

And fosters all our greed

It starts as an idea

Whether true or false

From pregnant thought grows motive

And next an act is born

As all the firs that burn

It can be enemy or friend

So, it is to us who wield it

That ownership must fall

Will we motivate and warm?

Or, manipulate and harm?

Will the light we bare and shine

Bring others sight

Or leave them blind?

In a time of propaganda

With ulterior agendas

What will motivate

And define us?

Will we bow to the elite

And lay as cattle at their feet?

Or will we Think and Act and Speak?

Influence is a tool and weapon

Fueled by thoughts and motives

How this weapon is used

On us and by us

Will determine

Our tomorrows
