Elastic Morality (A poem)

Its either black or white,
Rigidness high while judging other’s matter
Dish things out, but can’t take from platter?
What grade your child’s getting?
Staring the dress, “which sect u adhere”?
There’s much “Haram in your Halal, I swear”.
 Judgments sharp & opinions negative.
Got sentenced, ‘t was inevitable
Dealing with a moralist,  goodness a fable.
But Moralities turn lax & principle elastic
When self was to answer
Grey is important, as line in white & black blur
“My Children are only children
they’ll soon learn”..
“what haram or halal? …. I earn”.
“Well life is about gives and takes”
and “opinions often misleads”
There’s eventual goodness in all My deeds.
Fundamentalist for others
For self are temperate
Guessed rightly, only Hypocrites can relate.
