All it takes

It takes a comedian to stand firm on a besieged stage
where every day is a deadly rehearsal for a tragedy
written and directed by an amateur historian. It takes
a nation to stand bravely on the street barricades
with Molotov cocktails against tanks and vacuum bombs
thrown by the dictator and his minions. And I suppose
it only takes a glance for a decent person to decide
if they will express sorrow in some dramatic fashion
or actually bother to act upon it for as long as it takes.
