RIGHT THING WRONG
(7/5/17)

we all
have the same
source
of morality

the basic laws
seem immutable

the varieties
of application
of those tenets
however
are infinite

what seems
perfectly good
in one instance

may be horribly
bad
in the next

even though
the same noble
intentions
are used

human vicissitude
seem to necessitate
a more flexible
outlook

we are
often
most corrupted
by the choices
afforded

good people
are plagued
with a myriad
of options

the decisions
of those evil
ones
are simplified
by self

they
sleep sounder
than the
rest
