How Brave We Are

How brave we are

In shelted holes

To speak in hushed voices

Criticisms, anger, hatred

Our governments

Our laws

Their failures

Our pride

To stand in safety

As many, not as one

To fight with weapons

The pen and tongue

How brave we are

As all can see

It should be a question

How brave are we?
