Good and Evil
Amid life’s changing town
two escalators stand side by side
one moving up, the other down,
which one will you ride?
If to descent is your preference
a path to hell will follow you,
free will a tainted view.
Perhaps aspiring ascension
allures your self-control,
a certain fourth dimension
faithful filling hole.
Crazy hubbub, endless dream
good and evil inseparable
tie-binding thread a mighty seam
eternal outcome debatable.

That last stanza so succinctly describes the true human condition! Here is my response:
i loved the metaphor you weave here
I'll probably look at the escalator in the mall differently next time, since I read this.
