Virtue and Vice

What can be said to virtue and vice

That has not been said before


The lifeblood and the mortal wound

In the now (and times well-stored)


Sagacity reciprocates

And ‘learn-ed’ gives and takes


Like the clouds needed for thunder’s storm

With ignorance in their wake


But what of you – (and what of me)

Can we share our lives together


Will we both be lost to worldly-wise

Unwrapped and – yes – untethered


Or is our path the one less travelled

But the same one that entices


That leads us to emotive force

And by our own devices


Once arrived – with smile drawn

And profundity – immortal


One shares the air when tepid fair

Away – with mortal coil
