From Popularity (comes danger)

             From Popularity…

             (comes danger)

From popularity comes hazard,

Risk of peril,

Boy or girl at danger’s call.

From anonymity comes shelter:

No one knowing you at all.


Every country loves its tourists –

Bridges, tunnels… easy access;

Weapons, drugs,

Lawbreakers, thugs:

In short, new foes;

New secret foes that no one knows.

From popularity come woes.


Self-imposed expansion low.

Moderation is the answer,

Modesty the balancer

Of friendliness

And isolation.


From Popularity 4.17.2017

Our Times, Our Culture II; Definitely Didactic;
