  • Principle and Power

    An expression
    of what a man will do
    for power,
    is a projection
    of what he may yet do,
    with it.

    And
    that which a man will dismiss
    in his assessment of another,
    Is undoubtedly a reflection
    of his own scruples.

    For a principle
    cannot be so named,
    if one is either:
    ambivalent upon its assault,
    or selfish in its defence.

    We are to be defined by both
    that which we endeavour to endure,
    and,
    what we justify by infliction.
    For,
    a morality
    which is not universal,
    is unworthy of the monicker.
    And
    selective adherence,
    is merely,
    opportunistic self-interest.

    Since
    that which a man honours,
    invariably defines him.
    And what he values,
    he will labour to retain.

        I'm ever impressed with how you bend words to create such concrete truths from such abstract concepts.
