Compassionate Non-responsibility

Strange as it might seem
To recognise our non-responsibility
For what happens in our neighbourhood
To us and all about us
Brings humility and compassion
Caring, not carelessness
Whereas to assume responsibility
For all and sundry
Brings pride and cruelty
To self and other
As pretender and scapegoat
Receiving acclaim and blame
For what we think goes right and wrong
In this life of song
And dance
Between and around deceptive stance
As figure cut out from ground
