Marianne Moore (35)

e.e. cummings

M	in a vicious world-to love virtue
A	in a craven world-to have courage
R	in a treacherous world-to prove loyal
I	in a wavering world-to stand firm

A	in a cruel world-to show mercy
N	in a biased world-to act justly
N	in a shameless world-to live nobly
E	in a hateful world-to forgive

M	in a venal world-to be honest
O	in a heartless world-to be human
O	in a killing world-to create
R	in a sick world-to be whole

E	in an epoch of UNself-to be ONEself
