Two Poems and a Question Posed

by mudrhetoric

Reciprocation is an egoistic myth
Constructed to act as a base Rationalization for inaction
Care is not a duty as put forth by Kant
It is instead the recognition of the face
Which requires no gift in return


When there were gods
Broken signs
Of lands before
Artifacts now
Of the time now
Those remembrances of things past
Those misremembered golden ages
Where Truth reigned
Where God was king

Question: Are there any poems you’d like to see revised?
