Conduct Caliber -

Which is the greatest conduct of them all,
which one denies terpitude & futility most strenuously,
which exhalts productivity & nobility most vigorously,
is there a single method of action, behavior of best results
that is preeminent & priority above all others, a vangaurd conduct marshalling the rest,

I am the voice of Sympathy,
where there is woe, misery, lamentations abounding like leaves on trees
you'll find me,not as uplifting but reveling,

speaking as Efficiency I confidently state that none is more pivatol 
to success or goal, on my balance constructs & destructs are indistinct,

Compassion, the cornerstone of virtue, I am enabler of empathy,
the isolated instructor from within,
the summons of sorrow & vsion of victory,

as Education I say essentially,
expansion of intellect shrinks the world & ignites ingenuity
fascillitating personal progress like the breeze pollenates,

the attitude of Art, this is I, violent epiphany,
serene sensations & resolute reflections, 
a communicator of a cosmic kind, imagination hammering,

I'm the bell holler,
the quaint choir of warm Exhaltation,
a muse of meditations & mandalas, I build temples from tissues
and citadels where fears nest,

calculator of consequences, a storm of precise pursuit,
I am that which commands, conquers & survives demolition,
Leadership, heart's precinct,

you cannot deny my supremacy,
I am that ravenous stimulation which can kill or invite life,
Copulation is the term, that impetus which fascinates,

Love is my name,
I engender shame, pride & sacrafice,
a mountain whose summit always rises,
I arouse life forces to ever increasing standards,

Warfare, desire's demon,
you all blame me for the wrongs & feverishly recruit me
when your charms fail,
I am fire upon the soft flower of rewards - 

J.A.B.

    I can not stop reading. Your invigorating lines, captivating the reader, personifying this element. "I build temples from tissues and citadels where fears nest..." "Love is my name, I engender shame, pride & sacrifice..." "Warfare...feverishly recruit me when your charms fail. I am the fire upon the soft flower of rewards..." A tongue of daggers to slice the heart.

    Sympathy is indeed reveling ...and is found among the miserable. Definably liked that part of your poem. (: Dang--I cant even begin to express how much I like this poem. All these words--a form of conduct-- As for love, in my opinion the best conduct of them all, I simply loved the way you worded this all. Your mind must have been at hard work lately. Brilliance intensifying! --will be reviewing this work more thoroughly in le futuaaahhhhh! Always, Laura

    As is said Laura, ' the future is now' - my goal was to provide a dark & light persona to each of these crucial aspects of human behavior - to make them vey or compete for attention and justification - I personally like the 'matter of fact', sobering perspective of the Warfare persona - I'm ecstatic by your laurel Laura - J.A.B. %
