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 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.
