Ethics today

Posted on Posted in Poetry

Resenting culture in another;

Will not accept a rational mind.

Fearing intellect in a brother;

Play mind games of evil kind.

When ethics leave all sense behind

And ego takes control.

Losing face means so much more

Than losing one’s own very soul.

I’ll make a deal

And write it down.

Then add my seal

Before the Crown.

But don’t expect me to comply

When later on my mind doth change.

Now what I said does not apply

And so to me appears so strange.

Far more than any paper scribed

A person’s word was once all.

Now neither matter very much

As to the court we will not call.

For justice wields a hefty price

The common man cannot afford.

The shameless man he knows this well

So does not dread to keep his word.
