Why is there such a paradox,
within the human mind,
on matters of pure principle;
with others' rights denied.
Why do we take a stance,
defending what is right,
for ourselves and some;
but not for everyone?
Why is one principle applied,
to some but not to all,
where differences of race,
or creed dictate another course.
It's either meant for everyone,
a principle applied,
across the board, and all the time;
or  is convenient lie.
How neatly some sidestep and twist,
the truth as it should be,
to keep the principle for Self;
the worst hypocrisy.
