Bad Habits - Poem by Oyekake Satty (O. S.) Joshua

An uninvited guest
Forced into my home
Became the landlord
I pay him homage
Not to be evicted

If I cultivated integrity
If I nurtured honesty
If I hadn't abhorred virtue
I would retain my home
And not be lorded

    Being forced into a position of acceptance is a different philosophical dilemma to merely encountering acceptance as the least difficult choice. You make the point well - although it is obviously not of your choice. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
