Negativity —

Poem:

The way of gluttony and abuse

of the body’s own capability

to accept what appears beyond

its normal, intrinsic ability

might result not in joyful laughter

but pain and regret hereafter.

Years of self-centered avariciousness

beyond all moral acceptability

might lead one into alleys of shame

and lack of social adaptability

to an atmosphere of sound

relationships that one in good conscience

shouldn’t overlook.

When fortune is linked with the

cold effects of wrongdoings,

it loses its shine and sadly holds

no balance of human respectability,

for quantity alone doesn’t suffice

when quality justifies not its size.

Adding up the negative aspects,

we would but expect no more

than to see multiples of

glaring negativity in the equation

of our moral totality.
