Have You Smelled Empathy?

Child, enlighten me,

Have you smelled the aroma of Empathy,

such that cleanses and sweetens the air?

Oh! The fragrance is a perfect balance

of abnegation and disdain!

It still baffles me that

your kind can become so filthy.

feeling the latter is the dominant incense,

or that there is even a dominance!

What is that foul odor you radiate?

Not the fresh dew of your travels,

nor abnegation, nor disdain.

It’s subtle, laced with compassion.

A potpourri of love!

The End
