Drowned out Sounds

The world is cacophony
One must shout to hear themselves
But if one has an epiphany
A grand idea for mankind's bookshelves
How does one let the world know?
Attention is hard to grab
Like paper as wind begins to blow
Or like a very aggressive crab
Must one become a circus?
A ridiculed spectacle
Must one be degraded for notice?
Must one learn how to unicycle?
Life is full of noxious noise
Can one be louder than sound?
Actions are louder than words, so boys -
And girls, take action and stand your ground
The world is deaf and cannot hear
But when action draws near
One will find
That the world is not blind
