Civility

Civility

In his universe
Civility
Is paramount,
A virtue held high
Like his first commandment.

So he condones
(but never condemns)
The obvious poison
Drifting his way,
Daily.

He knows
The venom of “yes”
Is always apparent

But he stands forever
With tacit bravery

And an apathetic smirk.
