What a badge you got
Such a dishonourable badge
You want me to clap for you?
To give you flowers?
How dare you wear that badge?
As dishonorable as the others
We see them write everywhere
Tell their sad tales even when not invited
Display those dishourable badges
Like all that noise could make them honourable
Even their family shun them
Friends and foes alike mock them
Doctors are fed up with them
Some have several badges
None any better honourable
And yet, could it be …
That our perception itself…
Is actually that dishonourable…
A badge is a badge I advocate
Take the bearer as brave
To get any badge takes boldness
And bravery in the battlefield of life
