Dedicated to Greta Thuberg.

WHEN JUST ONE STOPS! (Addishanal Lines) (Completed)

When one stops turns around
Around against the onrushing
Onrushing mob of unthinking
The unthinking crowd
The masses who are not taking
Taking little or no notice of ongoing
Ongoing events
That one speaks out - no one
No one appears to be listening
Then a second stops to catch a word
A word or two
The second one then without a word
Not a word said - puts the one up
Up on the second's shoulders
A third produces a megaphone
Soon more of those who had been in a rush
Heedless headless leaderless
Stop and lend an ear - begin to listen
Soon the crowd becomes united as one
Hope yet for all - hope reigns supreme!
The tide of humanity can be turned!

Can lead to a united humanity!

Greta Thunberg - were one who did just that!

Great point well stated, Ken. One voice in a crowd can strike a willing ear then the chain reaction begins slowly then with exponential speed!
