Should we strive to do things right,
or what is right as well as we might?
All the better if we can unite the two,
still, how often is that actually true?
Do we choose a fast journey to fame,
or a road with truth as our highest aim?
One path is certainly easier to master,
yet is not wrong done right a disaster?
No excuse will do at the end of the day;
our conscience will still have its say.
