Ethics

Ethics is doing what you say
or is it saying what you do?
It must be congruence between those
in some way.

Or is it doing what someone else says?
Wait! People say one thing
and do another so it’s doing
what others do.

But are all others ethical?
I think not, so it depends
who you choose to ape. Its confusing,
this ethics thing.

Maybe it’s doing what the smart people say
or the really insightful ones
or the the prominent ones. They
must have something.

Damn… Hitler had all those things
Is ethics following what he said?
or what he did?
I think not.

Tomorrow I shall pick a simpler topic.
For today I shall avoid ethics
and just try to be good, whatever
that might mean.
