Doing No Harm

Posted: May 21, 2018 in Uncategorized

Is doing no harm good enough
not being evil is setting the bar low
I thank you for not telling me lies
I deeply appreciate not being murdered.

I do but can’t you muster a little empathy
is a bit of understanding too much to ask
between good versus bad balance seems preferable
tilt at that windmill or lance the side of a saint.

But tilt one way or the other
neutrality is a hazard zone
prone to entropy and decadence
this is an argument against peace.

Undermine tranquility set forces in motion
the adept’s way cannot be disequilibrium
everything else is driving me crazy
I am doing no harm I am doing enough.

          You vexed me with your unreason
          your lack of clarity your confusion and disquiet
          if we can be silent with one another for five minutes
          we may have a chance.
