Human Rights

We always talk, about

a human rights flout.

Should, we really need rules

to stop us being fools.

Are our rights moral

and can stop a quarrel?

Are they a natural law,

something to hold in awe?

Should we follow Kant

or was he too scant?

Was he too abstract

starting to detract

from his impact?

What we need is a morality

that is more than cordiality.
