Noblesse Oblige~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Noblesse Oblige

kindness

“Kindness” by Nasrin Barekat

a moral economy
owing to tenets of
classical chivalry
honor in kindness

fit for mature
self-secure modern
cultures an ethos
attaching fair duties
to privileged position
no matter how earned

polite ethical basis
for sharing society
healthy inclusive
responsible hearts
a virtue respectful of
common humanity

it used to be so
but alas I cannot
quite remember
just when
