Daily Prompt – Iron

The whispered rumor says the ways of humanity

Rest on gold, silver, iron and a heated vanity

Doing onto others has become the golden rule

Serving takes strength, not the rage of fools

This sense of sacred teases in its appellation

As the best way for mankind and our nations

Instead, the iron demand that might is what makes right

Seems to be a feverish response to this misguided light

This then is the mark of Darwin and of murderous Cain

To follow this path, seems to me to be quite insane

Tarnished pieces of silver offer that we should not do

The things that we would not want done to me and you

Like empty headed goats returned to acts of commission

And finding themselves just as guilty instead of omission
