The Moment by Ian McMillan

THE MOMENT

Stop what you’re doing and raise a glass
To those who wouldn’t let the moment pass;
To those who saw what must be done
In the slow light of the setting sun
And in the quick light of the brand new day
Raise a glass to those who say
‘We won’t let the moment pass
To remember broken voices, trampled grass
Dreams in bits on a filthy floor
Injustice sealing up a twice-locked door’.
Stop what you’re doing and stand with those
Who, in the desert, plant a rose
For social justice and, as it blooms
Brings light to those darkened rooms
So stop what you’re doing and raise a glass
To those who wouldn’t let the moment pass.
