WHEN ALL IS FAIR

Picture by Julia Manuel

Even stones are blasted

By the creation of mind’s art

Man, who art thou

To put out light

In another’s candle?

II

In a journey

Which all are meat

For the insatiable earth

And hungry scavengers,

Who is who

To squash the flower

Of another which yearns like yours?

III

We’re in this race

We all have our paces

And move with our faces.

When one trips

On your account

Let it be free of your conscience

Then this game will be fair

And your conscience will be clear

I value the conscience

Than winning.
