morality of inertia Poem by gershon hepner


MORALITY OF INERTIA

Suffering paralysis, morality
reaches an inertia whose disgrace
is aggravated by legality,
making arguments it ought to ace,
but can't, because inertia rules the roost, and what
is morally correct becomes a joke,
inertia blocking justice like a clot,
morality disabled by a stroke.
Morality when it has been obstructed by
inertia cannot be restored to life until
the moral principles that it tends to mortify
have been restored by moral courage and good will.
