Maybe Right, Maybe Wrong

Right, wrong, luck of the draw

Don’t steal, it is wrong
Don’t lie, it is immoral
Don’t kill, it is a sin
But who is one to say

Steal, you need to live
Lie, the truth would hurt
Kill, it’s in defense
But who are you to say

Right, wrong, just circumstance

John, great write! Si and crime really are circumstantial. No such thing as black and white, it’s all shades of grey.

I’m a big fan of free verse – it opens up the opportunity to say more. You handle it well.

No nits. Everything checked out well, and your words flowed. Write on!

I think it’s safe to say- circumstances count.
You show that very well in this piece.

Nicely done, sir!



Dang, i can’t argue with any of that logic! Just circumstance…deep and to the point. I liked this very much! A bit of a mind bender and things do make a difference when presented in different circumstances. Nice work. 🙂

Write On!
