No Enemies by Charles Mackay

Posted by in Politics, Thoughts

While watching The Crown, there is a scene where Margaret Thatcher (played by Gillian Anderson) reads a poem to the Queen. It was delivered soo beautifully that it left an everlasting impression. this Poem is befitting to my current professional career. i would do a full Tashreeh like i used to in FSc but it is not the time.

No Enemies
by Charles Mackay

You have no enemies, you say?
Alas! my friend, the boast is poor;
He who has mingled in the fray
Of duty, that the brave endure,
Must have made foes! If you have none,
Small is the work that you have done.
You’ve hit no traitor on the hip,
You’ve dashed no cup from perjured lip,
You’ve never turned the wrong to right,
You’ve been a coward in the fight.
