# 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.
