When the stakeholders are too many,
Silence is preferred to rectitude.
The sins of any large family
are never discussed in public view!
The immoral can be handled,
It suits the sinners to be so;
It's the principled that are tough,
They have a button called self-destruct!
The bull run amok in China shop,
Has a reason to be so upset;
No one wants to know - they shut him up,
Morality is always shut up!
The best way to retire is to fade;
Or take a ceremonial post
where you can mouth some platitudes,
But let the world go on as before!
