When Good Men Do Nothing
By Robert K Reitmann
Orriginally written in Aug 2017

Darkness sweeps across the land,
guided by evil hands.
Relentless it creeps, the people weep.
When good men do nothing…

Hope fades as graves are made.
The innocence slain.
When good men do nothing…

Safely stayed, behind walls they made.
Till the darkness came to fetch them.

In dismay they wailed, their cities failed.
Because the good men did nothing…

  • Sip it
  • Spit it
