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
