Virtue & Vice by Mike Williams 08/10/2017 @ 7:02 A.M.
For some say virtue and others say vice.
Or perhaps they are both about the same,
Each acting in accord to their own refrain.
Why argue over one’s favored book of choice?
Are not they all some distant propagandic voice?
What unreal divine imaginings turn laymen prophets too?
Until we’re unthinking, knowing not what to do.
You’ll never hear of mice and religious war.
While mankind still battles on and whatever for?
Maybe mice know something much wiser than men,
And opinions are all opinions in the end.
Those languages of old and their allusive poetry,
Mere gathered points of view often taken literally.
From their address of ancient differing culturalistic concern.
Yet we read the books and never learn.
So much for the compendiums written men’s hand,
And for their breeding I shall never understand.
‘Tis more noble the natural way of mice,
Better their perspectives of both virtue and vice.
