What Is Ethical

Ethics.
And those rules of law applied to them.
May be heard discussed,
In hallways of prestigious business schools.
But once those tests are passed.
And satisfy requirements to obtain degrees.
With letters of recommendations,
To appease those with lofty ambitions.
Soon it becomes clear with it discovered.
It is the street folks living in the hood,
Living fruitful and unethical lives.
And not done to lie about it.
While those hired to flip burgers,
With degrees and dorm room status.
Are reminded of their lack of experience.
On a job not selling what is ethical.
But reality that enables them to survive.
Away from books.
To begin using common sense.
Free to get at less expense.
