Peddle to us no fantasies
We won't be caught as contributors
Pitch not to us your thoughtless verses
We won't be caught as contributors
to your culture
We'll imbue meaning into every word
And whittle away all the excesses

We won't settle to imitate
The patterns of success
Nor the glory of the past
All stages are pedestals
To magnify the speakers
Are your words greater than self
Do the stage lights
illumine idea or ego

Do you step up to be known or to be heard
with or without meaning innovation or feeling
You may not starve for want of our attention
But we've grown accustomed
to speaking without saying
anything of meaning
So we will not let you linger there
where you generate pop interest
For we are culpable for the status quo
Instead we will cultivate...

Sympathy for the margins

We stoke the fire
but the fire needs
stoking continually
These thirsty embers
Preserve just enough light
to see our darkened figures
Thus the problem remains
That we all and our fears
Look the same cast in shadow
