Facing power alone. (source & source)

Aw yes,
To be an honest human being,
Honest with one's self,
Honest with God,
Honest with others.

Enough of,
Being an organizational man,
A team player,
A status-quo oriented,
Whatever you say boss,
Yes I'll kiss your ass,
Anytime you want,
Kind of guy.

What the world does not need,
Is another bunch of,
Scum-sucking sycophants,
Back-slapping toads,
Submissive slaves,
Grinning fools,
Yes men,
Truckling turds,
Groveling,
Boot-licking,
Brown-nosing,
Stooges,
Cowering,
Cringing,
Kowtowing,
Ingratiating goons,
Submissive,
Obsequious,
Sniveling,
Wheedling,
Well-wishers,
Mealy-mouthed,
Mortimers,
Fawning,
Groveling,
Partisan flunkies,
Ass-kissing,
Good old boy,
Government lackeys.

Enough of that sh*t,
To hell with that kind of life,
No more being just another,
Damn wage slave!

However,
What the world does need,
Is more,
Whistle-blowers,
Free-thinkers,
Infidels,
Insubordinates,
Doubting Thomases,
Devil's advocates,
Scoffers,
Rebels,
Recalcitrant radicals,
Reprobates,
Revolutionaries,
Iconoclasts,
Individualists,
Insurgents,
Insurrectionists,
Liberals,
Mutinous mugwumps,
Liberators,
Emancipators,
Seditious subversives,
Scalawags,
Mavericks.

People who,
Quite frankly,
Don't give a good damn,
About anything,
Except what is right.

What the world needs,
Is a few more,
Leo Tolstoys,
Henry David Thoreaus,
Martin Luther Kings,
Mohandas Gandhis,
John Lennons,
Bob Dylans.

A few more folks,
Like Jesus Christ.

A few more,
Loose cannons.

That's what,
The world,
Needs!
