True Grit

  “Posterity will remember and will burn with shame
Remembering these strange times
When common integrity was called courage” – Yevgeny Yevtushenko.

Don’t raise your voice
Lest it be heard by others
And cause you inconvenience.
If something happens
In your presence
Don’t be a witness.
Asked to depose, say,
“O.K. I was there that day
But I was looking the other way.”

This failing for want of corroboration
There is another solution:
Say, none of the parties
You can recognize.
If still proved otherwise
Your best solution should be
To disclaim your identity.
That is to say,
To say,
“I am not the person you take me to be.”
