The View From

Revenge is not a bad thing
We make it so
through anecdote.

For the sake of a leg,
losing your life to kill a fish.
Etc, &c.

In civilization,
you see,
one rises above,
does not stoop to that level,
does not give in to the temptation.

Perceptions dictated by diction.

As if, as if...

One could not be
to give food to a starving child, only

A victor's history where motive depends
on a difference of two syllables.
