A Good Man


I'm not even sure
of the meaning of good
or how close
the modal of should

from the core of the motive
to an act of compassion
is free of the germs of subterfuge
and the viruses of cheat

good relates to another,
I was born of a mother
into the species called human
not always humane

learned and imitated,
fed by a mother ueaten by father -
Are acts of good, directed
by should and conditional would
