Regarding Consequence





Ah, consequence! The aftermath of choice is undeterred
It sets with subtle stones a path, through rendered deed and word
The crux of instantaneous act does not unveil its stake
Desire without discernment leaves chaos in its wake

We, weak and prone to fretting fear sometimes leap first then look
Consequence follows then succeeds primary steps we took
The exterior of circumstance is like a bud or shield
That veils the bloom of Recompense, Response is sure to yield

Thus, we like Solomon of old, when Choice spreads its buffet
Should seek above silver and gold, wisdom for every day
The flesh ignores prudence, indulges then sorely repents
Wisdom implores its students to remember consequence
