Sticking out one’s neck for the underdog.
A NECK STUCK OUT


I am not afraid to stick
My neck out when needed,
Though now-a-days calls for help
Are often not heeded.

All are so much lost in their
Individual worlds.
None has time to speak out for
Others just a few words.

Those who, for principles’ sake,
Do want to be counted,
Are called trouble makers and
Insultingly hounded.

Everyone is for himself,
None for the underdog!
Not many stick out their neck
In such a mental fog.
