“Good and evil lay side by side.” Jimi Hendrix.
It's Never Us Everywhere we went we were convinced that the devil was prowling around causing mayhem and scheming all manner of evil, the old men at coffee were certain of it, they recalled the ills of our lot, the murder on station street, teens out of control, thefts were on the rise too, surely the horned red thing was active, just look at Russia, didn't that prove the whole thing? But one wizened old man cleared his throat and said, isn't evil the thing we do when we dehumanise the other, and haven't we all been guilty of that at some time or another? And, then he said, sometimes it's when we think we are the good ones and we are doing good things. A silence descended upon us and remains. Copyright 2022 ©Paul Vincent Cannon All Rights Reserved ®
