I've wanted to post about my views on Right and Wrong for a long time. But first, something about the limericks I write:
As "true poems" become rarer
The purists look on in terror
Wrong rhymes are OK
Unfunny lines not so away
But wrong metre is a fatal error!
Technically speaking, my limericks are wrong. Wrong, as in, they don't exactly follow the metre and the pattern prescibed for limericks. I find those rules rather hard to follow. For me, the criterion for testing my limerick is this: It must sound nice when read aloud, and the last line must be funny. And, of course, it must have five lines, and the aabba scheme (that's important for a funny last line ;-) ). I hate to be rigid, but I have to accept that it won't please the purists. I hope my lims does please you. :D
Right and Wrong
What's the deal with Right and Wrong?
Why does this debate take too long?
It just results in a fight
This Wrong and Right
I'd rather spend my time writing a song. ;-)
What's right, what's wrong? This is a question I've been wondering about since I started adolescence. I'm sure you all wonder about it too. It's rather hard to answer it directly, generally, and accurately. In fact, that's what I'm reading a book on Ethics for. So, I'm not in a position to answer, or think carefully about the question right now. But I still have my musings. :-) Just a brief note on them:
Firstly: Is it a dichotomy? Can't there be grey areas? But, in a particular case, can there be grey areas? Isn't, by definition, not right = wrong? I think so. In general, though, there can be grey areas, for which we must consider the individual cases.
Secondly: Is it important? I mean, does it matter that someone steals pens from their company, when it doesn't matter to the company? It's wrong, but does it matter? I don't think so. Right and Wrong only matters when decisions are made. In small cases, it doesn't.
I don't know what else to say... I'll have to read more on Ethics.
My next post will probably be some "Anti-Limericks". :D
