# 84 - Left & Right





George Orwell's left-wing views and bohemian clothes led British police to label him a communist, but the MI5 spy agency stepped in to correct that view.

I left the right place,


Turned right and on


The left Bank


Was the right cafe,


Where one could write


Leftist propoganda and


feel they could right


The world.


But if they were right,


What would be left of the


World we know?


Unsure of what was right,


I left the money, the


Journal, the cafe and


Set off to find the right


Path to salvation.


Was I right to persue


My passion, or in the


End would the status quo


be all that was left?


I bequeath to you this


Question: who is left right?


When ever was there not war?

Very thoughtful. I wanted to write about left leanings in some part of India but did not, at the last moment.
