When a brilliant man does stupid things
and falls from grace
how incredulous and judgmental we become.
We turn quickly to the pundits
who affirm our affirmations
and much more.

While often I can’t understand the man
who falls from grace
neither do I claim
that I’m a better man.
For I am fallen, too.
Though you may lack the details
I’m no better than you.
And we, no better than he.
