No Hero

Please don’t call me a hero

For just doing my duty

As a functioning member

Of society

For doing as anybody else

Could be expected to do

For offering help

To those in need

 

Please don’t call me a hero

I should not serve as an inspiration

But as a lesson

Of how far our society has fallen

When selflessness and compassion

Are not commonplace

And shallowness and selfishness

Are the norm we measure against

 

Please don’t call me a hero
