For the Common Good - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

alone we delve into our minds
why cannot someone see
a force of good potential
from sea to shining sea

we have a good within us
to build up where nothing stands
yet, we merely watch as our towns
turn into dust and sand

a blueprint of perfection
need in our hands to be
want of construction
permeates our seed

some blow their brothers into bits
because of pea sized brains
some sit and watch a tubular
for very little gain

if we band together
should be for common good
to find a place in history
which carries that for which we stood
