Human Values Are Not What Humans Value?

the value of a tangible item
inheres in you
never in the object itself
unlike its dimensions, weight, or shape

also, two people faced with a decision
may choose different
based on the value they individually ascribe
to the outcome or consequence of that decision

however, all that is of lesser importance
than what the two ought or ought not to want
for only then can ethics be put into question
or will power come under examination

  2. It certainly could. Prompted me to ponder ‘planning’.
