Anthropology~by Paul F. Lenzi





“Frienemy Dance” by graphicanthropology

moral compass gone awry

true north in declension

dragged southward

by weighty exertions

of culture in conflict

rebellion against social mores

communal consensus

of right and of wrong

turned from credos to whims

pulled from underneath

once secure ethical pins

upside down inside out

customs mortally wounded

lay bleeding their wisdom

in clash with fierce armies

of personal paradigms

leaving tomorrow uncertain

the journey unguided

each choice a new agony
