Do the Right Thing

do the right thing

I saw a man dragging a puppy

that didn’t want to go

And everyone else in the street didn’t want to know

“Don’t get involved!” said a nervous Mr Hay

And he crossed over the street

to walk the other way!

I saw a brother pinch his little sister

on her tiny arm

How could anyone want to do

another body harm?

“Don’t get involved!” said a spiteful Miss Melissa

She won’t play with me at school

and is meaner than her sister

I saw a man shout

and push a woman to the ground

She bowed her head and was crying

but you couldn’t hear a sound

“Don’t get involved!” said a crabby Mrs Mend

And I wondered for over a month

if that poor woman had a friend

But now I’m older and I know better

I want to pass this message on

If there’s a body in need

you must always take heed

Because nobody wants to go through it

alone

    • So true! Often it’s so much easier to look the other way – I find it hard to look the other way – it would torment me if I didn’t do something and that’s got to be waaaaay worse! 🙂 xoxo

      • I am the same. I have to say something about it, can’t just walk on by. Hate it when people are fighting even more, I’m not as strong as I once was but can’t let it happen on the street. Most of the time they do stop but there’s still that chance that one of them could have a weapon and I could be injured. I only think of that afterwards though. I’m sure I’d have made a good copper back in the day 😃💋

      • Oh definitely! That really is the attitude you need – you are there to care for others – part of good policing is getting involved! I have a friend who was partnered with a weak officer who wouldn’t get involved because of fear – that just left my mate in absolute danger, you may as well be on your own! 🙂 xoxo

      • Yes, I guess I see it as if you can’t be galled into action as a policeman (it’s your job), by seeing your partner in potential danger and not backing them up, then you are in the wrong job! But yes, we all sit on a compendium of continuums – some of us needing more of a reason/push to extremes than others, I s’pose 😉 xoxo
