Are you an active member?

A poem published in the 1998 Circuit of Munster Programme

Are you an active member, the kind that would be missed
Or are you quite content that your name is on the list?

Do you attend the meetings and mingle with the flock
Or simply stay at home to criticise and knock?

Do you take an active part to help the work along
Or are you well satisfied to only just belong?

Do you ever take a stand for things you think are right
Or do you leave the work to just a few and talk instead of fight?

Think it over member you know what's right and wrong
Are you an active member or do you just belong?
