Stepping into filth but keeping pristine

Step carefully into this filth

Keep you clothes clean, pristine

Get involved but don’t immerse yourself

For making friends with slime, will result in

Sucking you into this cesspool of grime and slime

Everyone avoids situations which can muddy their reputations

Which can make their hands dirty and clothes splattered

But bystanders can not hope to fix the leaking gutters

One has to wrestle with the broken pipes after standing in the waste

Just don’t let the stench pervade your soul or spirit

Keep it at arms distance and away from your mind

The cesspool of humanity needs fixing up collectively

  1. Wow! Such powerful words at the end, “The cesspool of humanity needs fixing up collectively.” It’s so true. A lot of humanity doesn’t even know how to action decency and common courtesy nowadays. It’s incredibly sad and victimizes others around them. Thank you for your powerful words and for sharing ❤️
