Something to Think About by James Babbs

not everyone can be a great athlete
and score the winning run
not everyone can be an accomplished musician
and make people happy
by playing and singing their songs
not everyone can be a great writer
putting beautiful words on the page
not everyone can be a celebrity
and that’s okay
the world has enough athletes
the world has enough musicians
and plenty of writers
and it doesn’t need any more celebrities
what the world needs is more good people
more good people
with a common sense of decency
just some more good people
and better pay for poetry
