let others get involved

how messages are sent we cannot tell
those are the secrets we don't want to know
let others get involved in all the show
we wait for cheering and applause to swell
and slip out before all that can compel
us to remain will lead each to bestow
such honours as the crowd deems àpropos
these are not moments for the gong and bell
doors remain shut to every human hope
but we will force them to yield to our plea
no one could doubt our anger or our need
there are no other ways but up the slope
no choice but climb or else drown in the sea
the winner is the one who plants a seed
