Morals And Rules Are For Slaves
Commandments are for slaves, ETHICS are for free men.
Is it ever 'right' to take a head, maybe?
Is it ever 'right' to take a lady?
Are there not always exceptions?
So there will always be insurrections!
Live from the heart with a drop of mind,
There you will find 'ethics' to be mined.
What is 'right' comes from the heart and the head,
whether on the battlefield of life,
or in the bed.
(of course just snuggling)
