Steady State - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Care is constant:
goes up someplace,
goes down someplace else:

the more you care for your child,
the less you care for yourself;

the good who don't care they're being watched
are looking after their children,
the good who do,
aren't;

Bad watchers
are working out how
to do the good who don't.
