When the People Say

When the people say
Yes they do, with may
Not that they are at bay
They are the oceans’ sway

They have the might
Might that catches the plight
It’s so even without sight
They are the oceans’ sway

Wind moves water ashore
But water don’t give a dire
The wind’s persistence sore
They are the oceans’ sway

Powerful as they are
Gentle is their flare
With humility of power
They are the oceans’ sway

They go back ‘n deep sea
As fast, as one can see
Not harming the wind’s plea
They are the oceans’ sway

They let the wind to enjoy
Test its clout the whole day
Swing however it weigh, BUT
They are the oceans’ sway

People can be very calm
Not that they have n’ realm
They do with humility of lamb, BUT
They are the oceans, sway

They, like water, are strong
Strength seen even from throne
Never wish them to be in throng
They are the world’s sway
