An Eye for an Eye

An Eye for an Eye
(or Eye Don’t See What You See)

When you look closely
what do you see?
Is it strength or malice,
justice or vengeance,
ambition or greed?

It seems  
what we all need
is an accurate lens
that allows us
to focus on facts
and intentions
and not hocus-pocus.

Tell me, exactly,
when did grace & charity,
empathy, goodwill,
and compassion
 fall out of fashion?

And,
more importantly,
please,
may it be
just the tiniest while
before they come back
into style.
