The Golden Rule

Inspired by Shel Silverstein

The golden rule says
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
But Lee was a scientist and set out to test this rule

He tripped an old man on the side walk
Stole candy from a baby
Sang off key in choir rehersal, driving his director crazy
Ranout on his lunch tab
Pulled the tail on a pupy
Even gave a homeless man a check
Signed, but for no money

Lee came back home ready to be punished for his sins
But nothing happened.
Lee had been forgiven

The whole time Lee was acting like a fool
Everyone he’d wronged was living by this rule
They forgave him and sought no retribution
That day the scientist found his problem had a solution
Forgiveness
