Manners of Corruption
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
 
Corruption strikes a synonym with
Good manners – its elegance is what clinches
The deal; that’s why corrupt people are so
Refined, hushed of voice and soft of smile.

It’s as though being apart from honest dealings
It implicitly transcends them, a higher 
Zone for being privately understood:
A swift delicacy of transaction.

Yet, when spoken of by the world in rough
Accents, corruption in the term 
Is brought down to its level, bad-mannered
Decrials fill the corrupt with revulsion.

Wistfully, the corrupt view justice for 
Their deeds as being torn limb from limb by animals.
