Consequence



The law is necessary but not sufficient.
Consequence is conscience.
Characters in a story without an author,
the humans make the world
more inhuman every day.
We get lost looking
for the reinstatement of the lost:
the reductivist and the reactionary,
perpetuating poppycock in perpetuity.
The cost of complicity:
fantastic fancies and fancy fantasies.
Are you the sort of person
who prefers the part of the sentence
before "because" or after?
