Poem: "Sister Courage and Brother Luck"

This is the freebie for the October [community profile] crowdfunding Creative Jam.  It was inspired by [personal profile] wyld_dandelyon.


"Sister Courage and Brother Luck"


Fight the evils of the world
by yourself, and you lose.

The odds are always
stacked against you.

Find others who feel
as you feel, band together,
and you can make a difference.

It's hard, but you can do it.

It takes a good break,
but you can find it.

Everything is easier
with enough good people
working alongside you.

The path to big, systemic change
is collective action. That takes
Sister Courage and Brother Luck.
