       My sis said it was cliché. I told her she sucked.

    I know it is...I like it anyway.

    Push aside the ignorance
    Tiptoe into the mind
    We can make it better
    With the knowledge that we find

    Combat the evil leeches
    Rip aside the veil
    Free the illiterate and the broken
    From their own private hell

    Knock down the walls
    Pick the words up off the ground
    Take the truth and the unknown
    And spread it all around

    Ignore the propaganda
    The bleating of the sheep
    Sow the seed of knowledge
    And pray the roots grow deep

    Strive for information
    Despite the misty fog
    Use your mind to think
    Or else you're just a boiling frog.

      Haha, this one's cute.
    This one was nice, but boiling frog?
    Well, there really isn't a word to rhyme withfog that means stupidity.

    "Another foolish dog"

    But still, this was nice. I loved the visuals and the rhyming. Thanks for sharing.

      I do believe I shall take your advice lest I end up frog legs on someone's dinner plate! Great insight in this poem. I enjoyed your abcb rhyme that was in all the stanzas except the second. If I may make a suggestion, using something like "Rip apart the shell" for line 6 would keep your rhyme scheme throughout the entire poem. Nice job, Sharon :-)

      "Or else you're just a boiling frog"...now that is something I have never had the least bit of desire to be, in fact I've never considered a biling frog prior to the reading of this piece. I do agree with the sentiments of this piece...far too many are happy to just proceed on in their own brand of happy ignorance.
