Owning misconduct is applauded and further recognized - a poem.
|Upwards roll the feet
Of a proud society,
On the verge of a stunning triumph.
Fulfilling strength and decency.
With which hardness must contract,
Until convicted of its salty ownership.
Then losses must be maintained,
The conversation grows
Regardless of the sworn trust,
After a lengthy discourse.
Yet nothing can please us,
Or remain less volatile...
That complete contrivance
Of nonsense and ever-stricken morals.
