To Lay the Blame | A Poem by JD DeHart

To lay the blame
is simple, is easy,
is as simple as picking
up a light word, laying
it down thickly,
squarely on someone else

now taking blame
is another matter, feels
weighty, an Atlas feat,
but shuffling blame
is a simple process, barely
lifting a finger, better to
do the heavy lifting.
