The Ostrich Rider

In the land of ideas, there once was a man
Whose thoughts were as bold as an ostrich's grand plan
Herbert Marcuse was his name, and he saw
That society's ills were built into its law

He looked at the world with a critical eye
And saw oppression, and said, "We must try
To break free from the chains that bind us so tight
To find a way to live in the truest light"

And yet, like an ostrich with its head in the sand
Many ignored him, dismissed him out of hand
They didn't want to see what he had to say
They'd rather stay comfortable and go on their way

But Marcuse persisted, he spoke his truth
He called for a revolution, for the youth
To rise up and fight against the status quo
To create a better world, to let freedom flow

And though some may still choose to ignore
His ideas live on, forevermore
For just like an ostrich, he had a vision clear
And even in the face of doubt, he persevered.
