Extrordinary (Sic)

I could have done the right thing
made the moral choice.
I could have opted
to listen to the angels.

Looking at all the evidence
considering all the possible paths
studying history and philosophy
and aeronautics and geometry
I could have thought long and hard
and gone a different way.
I could have been good.

I had been given all the tools
of ethics
and an honest upbringing
that might have led me
to being caring
and just, and maybe
just a little extraordinary.
I had opportunity.
I had motive.

I had the chance
to be a good little boy
and I could have taken it
and maybe someday
I will.
