Honor Is

.
.
To get
Along together
Should Be
So simple

To act
With honor
Requires
So little

We are
Not required
To love
One another

We are
Not required
To trample
One another

We are
Not required
To subjugate
One another

We are
Not required
To understand
One another

We are
Merely required
To be
Mutually polite
And behave
With honor

Forgoing
Shame of
Ancestors
Guilty or
Victim

Forgoing
Allowing
Vengeance
Deserved or
Desired

Shame is
Not Honor

Revenge is
Not honor

Honor is
Not love

Honor is
That quality
Which allows
For love
To be

Blah Blah Blah

.
.
Isometrics make Politely attentive
Easier to bear
Twitching here
Inside pushing there
Run through a kata
Or an opening scene
Motionless stretch
For a dance routine
White noise monotone
Is the underneath drone
Birds sing outside
And the wall clock ticks
On mumble on only
Pausing for breath
Perhaps I should warn you
You cannot talk
Me to death
