Compromises


A word widely misspelled,
Dictionary adds and justifies,
And over all accepted,
A welcoming compromise.

An enemy of an enemy,
Becomes an ally,
To win the war,
Nothing to shy.

A couple having adverse relations,
Live together and pass the life.
Just for their coming generations,
A good husband and a wife.

But a compromise on ethics,
Has no excuse.
I condemn,
I refuse.

    Compromise on ethics is never possible. It is like color of skin which can not be erased. There are so many inherent quality with every one like some one can lie fluently but some one can never. One royal person asked me to write in his praise. I flatly refused because my pen can not move. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
