Punishment

I have a great view
where I work,
but I never look,
as it just reminds me.

Sometime,
when I listen to twenty opinions,
I forget
I never listen to advice.

I’d been told before
that right
and honorable
are not the same word.

A little piece
at a time
is too much to ask for.
But I ask anyway.

I don’t ask the questions
so I can get the answers.
I ask simply
for the punishment.
