6671.
Giving Consent
What has become cheapened.
And worthless to value.
Seems to reflect the mindset of those,
Who have chosen as a standard...
...
6672.
Minds Blinded
Unreasonable,
Had those times been to leave behind.
To clear and replant a better footing of roots,
On paths weeds now found....
...
6673.
Once The Bait Has Been Tasted
No one should ever attempt to reason,
With another who takes pride...
In starting arguments.
Nor begin to sniff or become curious,
...
6674.
Stagnated Eruptions
Stagnated eruptions,
Entrusted to dysfunctions rusted.
With aging foundations,
Brittle and crumbling in hopes to save...
...
6675.
To Keep Stepping. Away. Effectively
All the tools available,
Had been theirs to use.
And among them lived diverse experts,
In various fields of proven endeavors.
...
6676.
How Long Had It Been There
It would only have taken minutes,
To sit and listen.
Giving undivided and focused attention.
But what was chosen by many to do instead,
...

Effective Exceptions

To do what they please.
And as they wish.
With little regard of others' detriment.
...
6678.

More today than any yesterday before,
More who have had judgements passed...
Upon them to endure without a looking back,
As deceivers discreetly attacked their good deeds...
...
6679.
Receptive Without Disrespect
An interest in others quickly displayed,
Can easily become distorted...
When those on the receiving end,
Perceive one's interest is only given...
...
6680.
Wishing For More
Give me something few demand.
And even fewer understand,
Affection.
To dream of it with wishing for more.
