Choose Wisely

On my right I saw Franciscans

Holding a sign with their motto,

‘Pax Et Bonum’, And Dominicans

Holding a sign with their motto, ‘Veritas’ .

To my left I saw, separated from them

By an unimaginably huge abyss,

Infinitely insatiably enraged

Dogs, rodents, and all other manner of creatures,

Each held bound by a very short leash.

Men and women from all walks of life

Were given a choice

Of which road to take across the abyss.

It was difficult to tell which way to go

Since the road toward the left

Was often fragrant and lovely,

And the road toward the right was

Frequently difficult and ordinary.

So many go the wrong way.
