Great respecters of poetry
forgive a poet his sins
for their regard for poetry.
They forgive him for his theme,
Disregard for Others,
or say they cannot see a sin,
his theme, Regard for Others.
They argue the toss
But seeing there's a bit of both,
surrender to others' decision,
Inclusion or excision.
