Moons and the Human Conscience

Even when it comes to morals
We seek out equilibrium.
People lauded for good deeds

Like to do a little dirt.
Prisoners in holding cells,
Ashamed of themselves, are kind,

Are kind because they are ashamed,
Just as the charity workers
Exploit because they’ve been so good.

Research supports this. I don’t
Cotton to claims of causation,
But I know oscillation,

And the cosmos has many
Smooth pendulums, among them
Moons and the human conscience.
