The Virtuous Achievers - Poem by Deborah Loraine Kean

The world is not enough
But it's plenty, for most people
Over much, some would say
They are a thin, clever hard people
Who preach the virtues of being tough

    Being tough? Well the response of that is toughness isn't it? World is not enough, probably for some people, problems are rising all over, it is a crazy world, just need to fit in.

    Virtues often fall into the catagory of, 'do as I say, not as I do.' Admire the virtuous man, but watch your back. I really liked this one very much. (Report)Reply
