You don’t bow, they said, you ain’t gonna survive;
In peril, you’ll always stay, no room here for a naive.
And then there was a fight – choose between the good and the right;
Ethics were a hallmark, I stood by it with all my might.
But then I seem to be loosing now, that’s what the times have made me feel;
Courage to fight, proud to be righteous, I’ve lost it all and my zeal.
I tried giving up ‘the right path‘, pursued the path of ‘good‘;
Conscience called me a hypocrite, reminded ‘right‘ was my staple food!
