Moral Debate number 42 This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


Carpe Diem
or was it Diem Carpe
those "moralgrounded"
corporate whores
preach to the world
but mostlythemselves?
All in dry hopes
of setting a standard -
their standard-
of who I should be,
think,
see.
Well, sir,
I have my ownmouth,
eyes,
mind.
And I intend to find
my own moralconscience.
I'm sorry, sir,
but I can't afford
some 20 dollarcosmetic
that covers my spirit
and hides my identity.
Please excuse me,sir,
but it seems
I have a day to seize.
