Conformity
by Elizabeth Dandy
Bookmark and Share
 

Embrace and hug the odd ball Maverick,
Then let him go and free to take his leap;
T’s is wise to ignore what makes a fellow tick,
Or why he simply will not follow sheep.

Embrace and hug the stubborn Heretic
And hold for naught his anathema’s taint,
Today he’s spurned and scorned, and gets the stick;
Tomorrow he will be declared a saint.

And keep away of bumptious rhetoric,
That will not let your little candle burn,
But sermonizing tries to dowse its wick,
The things that man by his own sweat must learn.

Friend! Shun conformity that follows sheep,
Prefer the lone savage jaguar,
While sheep conform, and in warm safety sleep,
The jaguar's keen eyes look into stars.
