a foolish consistency?

to boldly write

one person’s rule can keep the barbarians away from the gate,
for another that same rule can be a constipated editor
who substitutes protocol for message,

our goal is for words to fit together
and stretch toward truth,
our challenge is to guess right
whether a rule helps truth
or is a foolish consistency.

each of us can bring their own take on it all.
