We Will Prevail

We Will Prevail

When potholes come and they’re ignored
By salaried strangers
On rainy days we will sail endangered
Rubber ducks by the thousands
In those tiny pools of neglect

And with mischievous fun we will prevail

When policy makers and culture fakers
Say: “they rank lowest, are poorest, have least.”
We will reveal a feast of gifts, skills and passions: from murder mystery to local history

And with defiant theatrical swagger we shall prevail.

When the helpers come with assessment forms and needs analysis
We will ask ‘why, don’t our assets look big enough in these?’
‘Give us your salaries and leave us in peace’

But with the best of them who hear us into full expression, we will prevail.
