Poem – Moral Absolution

I felt a pang of enmity

In shoulder and in heart

A pang that measures friend from foe

Who, once loved, now forgot.

 

But enmity and absolution

Couldn’t share the thoughts of one

A lover with a dagger drawn

Spells irony to some

 

To heal, to treat, perambulate

Attend to task at hand

Others would awaken

Compassion in that man.

 

Beholden love, beholden trust

Respect met Graciousness that day

Invited Care, Consideration

To participate, to stay.

 

Notice the feather in his cap

See the bird resting on the sill

Bravo those attending him

Thank God they always will

 

Give of themselves what’s within

Release, absolve, commute

Consider not the worth of man

But the moral absolute.
