CROSS SWORDS: HIERARCHY OF VALUES
Athenians speaks nobly about rights,
freedom of expression are important cites,
media flag shows increasing colour and might,
harm, offence and limitations, refrain fight,
citizen right, human right, things not right,
free expression and blasphemy is what excites.
punch, no longer offer other cheek, tiara invites.
world so full of words, fight pen with ink,
fireballs and power will bring both to brink.
sensitivities, over excitability, not easy to match,
hierarchy values differs, on surface they scratch,
family, friends, faith, happiness are your steps,
quicksteps in modern living, meanings intercept.
if values are indivisible , the swords cross,
sound of one hand clapping, silent ethos.
