Have you ever felt that some rule or law was just not fair? Have you ever heard it said that ignorance of the law is no excuse? How many think they are smart enough to be president of the United States? Do you think you are above working on a garbage truck? If the answer to all these questions is yes, then you are like most people who feel that all people other than yourself should live by one standard that is a level of responsibility only you are capable of…or are you? Do you see their failings and hide your own?
ONE SIZE FITS ALL
How can you make a rule, that will not fall.
When the one rule made, is one size fits all.
It is as complicated, as it is simple to see.
For one an orange, another, an apple it will be.
How do you hold a man, who has meager ability,
To the standard of one, of athletic agility.
How do you hold a man, of lesser mental capacity,
As responsibility as one, of higher reasoned audacity.
When confidence and arrogance, are treated the same.
How can they be the same, when it comes to blame.
The reason that an old man, tattered and broken,
Must keep up with a young man, is long unspoken.
Expectations are ordained, by security of affluence,
For those who are the least, of humanity’s influence.
Those who are on top, have the least occasion to fall,
While those on thin ice, are ruled by one size fits all.
