Responsibility - Poem by Joydeep Sircar
The doctrine of personal responsibility
is easier to state
than to live up to.
Confronted with our transgressions, most of us
deny these like Peter, plead extenuation,
or pray to a God we otherwise don't remember.
Others simply say: it was written.
Refusing to add anything to mea culpa,
a few mad ones
arrogantly reach for fatal perfection.
