NON-STARTER






If anybody ever says to you:
"If only ev'rybody would agree
To do exactly what I tell them to,
You'd all be saved - if you agree with me",
I'd advise you to be most suspicious
Of anyone who said a thing like that.
Like as not the person is ambitious.
Yes, chances are the chancer is a rat.
And if one says to you: "My friend, it's sad,
But innocents must needs be sacrificed."
If you agree with him, then you are mad -
For you could be the innocent who's iced.
Surely, if a movement needs a martyr,
It becomes an obvious non-starter.
