speak truth to power

I pray you will no longer be silent
hiding behind a name
knowing the importance about which you speak
leaving the injustice there
it is past time to speak
to speak truth to power
come out from behind your mask
let the chips fall where they may

speak truth to power
quote attributed to Edmund Burke,
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.”
