If You Have to Have

If you don’t have a choice, rejoice,
‘Cause you don’t have to care.
If you have to have a choice, a voice,
In what gets done and where
Be sure you listen to your voice
Before you offer it to share.
I’ve let fly some wild birds
That never had a prayer
Of ever being heard
‘Cause however right they were
They were outright absurd,
Their meaning eaten by the words.
