680. My right hand and my left hand

When my left hand
Wants to do something,
I deliberately do not inform
My right hand.

When my right hand
Wants to do something,
I immediately inform
My left hand.

Why? Why am I so unjust?

I am not unjust, I tell you,
I am not unjust!
I and my justice
Are eternal friends.

To you I offer my realisation:
My left hand just talks and talks;
My right hand devotedly and constantly acts.
