Conscience

July 11, 2015 - Poetry

Is desperation bad?
Is conscience good?
Yes, unless …

What excuse can I proffer for pitiless
Amoral inaction or rapid tactlessness
In action? To act and not to be acted
Upon. Agency cannot be retracted.

A man who stares at a woman
Who ignores that she is beautiful
Cannot hold responsible the man
Who in his turn remains dutiful.

The regret is not personal,
Not private,
Just universal.
