Moral Fluidity

Evolving tides of moral right

If all the world is a grand stage

Can it not also be our reality cage

We form our moral sense of wealth

Scarily fluid humanity stealth

Like actors wearing masks of right

We decide what counts with ignorant might

Can a thing be truly said to be innate

Generational responsibility abdicate

A day dawned many years ago

When public killings were all a show

Brutality justified moral frame

Hindsight describes a compassion maim

Hated lovers chained and scared

Their only crime being gender paired

Rules of right written generations long

Recent decades taken to rewrite the song

What in the end can be judged correct

When it can evolve from totally suspect

Reality is often in the eye of the beholder
