Good and Evil
Is still the game in town.
Whether you recognize it or not,
It makes no difference.
Whether winky frown, hashtag or Kermit meme
has taken rot of your existence.
The world is changing, and at breakneck speed.
The elements are changing.
With impending ( trending! ) persistence.
The human element gravitating to self and
apathy, lust and greed.
The rest of them burning, disappearing,
corroding or falling into the sea.
I know this must be a preachy bummer.
A pulsating pustule, a sundowner to summer.
But, integrity matters.
It matters more than some may think.
