I have noticed an increase in blaming, finger pointing, toxic individuality, and lack of responsibility over the past few years. This quatrain refers to that. With apologies to Omar Khayyám.1
The accusing finger points; and having pointed
Stays put: nor all thy vain glory, nor thy hubris
Shall straighten it for thee to see
Nor all thy scorn shall understand e’en a grain of this.
1. Omar Khayyám (1048 – 1131) was a mathematician, philosopher, astronomer, and poet. He is best known for his quatrains translated into English as The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyáam, by Edward Fitzgerald in the mid-1800s.
