Parables


Poesy plus Polemics

Aesop Painting by Diego Velasquez From oel-bild.de Aesop

fables suggest a morality
one that can’t be sustained
without constant reminders
if not for ourselves for the
subsequent good of our species
tales told by oral tradition
link fathers to sons through
exemplars small heroes who
navigate mundane vicissitudes
drawing the ethical paths
around easy temptations
frankly graphic to illustrate
need for responsible choices
when building a life in the care
of a comfortable conscience
