Who’s in the right?

Ethics for Everyman

Ethics for Everyman


Ethics for Everyman        Roger Woddis

Throwing a bomb is bad,

Dropping a bomb is good;

Terror, no need to add,

Depends on who’s wearing the hood.

Kangaroo courts are wrong,

Specialist courts are right,

Discipline by the strong,

Is  fair if your collar is white.

Company output ‘soars,’                                                                                                                      Wages, of course, ‘explode’;                                                                                                                Profits deserve applause,                                                                                                                    Pay-claims, the criminal code.

Daily the Church declares                                                                                                                   Betting-shops are a curse;                                                                                                                   Gambling  with stocks and shares                                                                                                     Enlarges the national purse.

Workers are absentees,

Businessmen relax,

Different as chalk and cheese,

Social morality

Has a duality—

One for each side of the tracks
