Are You Sure You'Re Wrong? - Poem by Michael Shepherd

'UK schools may no longer be obliged
to teach right and wrong'...

well, OK, but how do we know
whether that decision's right
or wrong?

    An important musing, this, at heart. Wo/mankind has become so self-important and so self-serving (blahblahblah) that in seeking to do what is 'best' for society, it has really gone to the other extreme - all in the name of humanism. Idiots! Who suffers most? The young, the weak, those w/o a voice... Forgive the rant; delet.e at will. And thanks for this, Michael. (Report) Reply

    They should teach diversity of opinion. And judge and 'teach'' as 'wrong' only those which are. Oh.... Oops. Back to your well-posed original question.... M, I think this is SO to the point. t x (Report) Reply

    If we neglect a basic moral code of kindness and respect then this will be our downfall
    The slate if wiped clean of lessons learned from right and wrong may have no room for guidence, therefore we will stumble and fall
    Thankyou for this Micheal
    Love duncan X
