a flourish #3

a thought broke out, i hear, last night;
it finally got some air –
about how we are meant to live,
and why we ought to care.

these ethical imperatives
can have lives of their own,
and tunnel under our defense,
right to our very throne,

where they insist on changing things.
it’s really most perverse:
how we should all be better, when
we’d rather just be
worse
