The eye in the sky

von Norbert Rath

It is not Google who does watch us here
but an eye far bigger than we know.
We can’t escape this one so we stay clear
of things that hurt even before we go.

The eye called conscience is so hard to please
because it defies any concrete grip.
It is ingrained in us like a disease,
ever so often wielded like a whip.

Who made us think of what is right or wrong?
Did we come by it just by chance or how?
Were our primal ancestors so strong
that there’s a guideline for us even now?
