Should all the world be monkey-do

And turn a royal purple hue,

Don’t let the voting colour you,

If you have heart of green;


Head and shoulders through your shroud,

Now rise above the madding crowd,

Dare to live, and live out loud,

 With courage, intervene.



You Will Not Shut Me Down!

I stand alone in this crowd.

You play judge and jury here;

You resent the way I bloom,

My scent, in you, breeds fear.

You will attempt the shift,

Carve my beauty to mimic you –

But you will not shut me down,

To my blossoms, I am true…
