The Ethics Of A Duel - Poem by Giorgio A. V.

When a coarse concept, descends to mind,
when a lowborn idea breaks down to grind,
mental opposition will arise, as part of nature,
only well favored by Laws, a mind to adjure.

Atrocious behavior appears as subjective,
reason of insecurities - lack of perspective,
and then a kindly solution should complete,
cause nature expects balancing, to deplete.

Elements of ill-nature may uplift for fights,
when vile glowers in soul, to create 'rights',
true then solution be, for objectivism to try,
if you insist to attain thyself, duel and die.

But if you manage to survive and live to tell,
dispiriting your life will be in darkened well,
because you did not accept Laws' shields,
Noble souls you won't see in Valhalla fields.

Spiritual Death descends ominous, as void,
emptiness will engulf spiritless lives devoid,
heroes in beatific worlds - will be redeemed,
as Laws will be in Olympus, well esteemed.
