Who would have thought a class on ethics would trigger a “pome” but that’s what happened when I worked on the assignment for this week: Describe who we are as a class based on our individual narratives as people and professionals (view Persona Professionale for mine) . I had to save it for posterity ;).
Who are we, this class of Ethics for the Professions, Spring 2013?
A patchwork quilt of a myriad cultures, languages, experiences, and goals
Unified by a common dream.
Some of us have shared a classroom before, others we are just beginning to know.
Though our bonds of kinship are nebulous yet, in strength surely, they will continue to grow.
For we are a group shaped by faith and family
That holds dear truth, knowledge, loyalty, and integrity.
That this would be a poem, I did not know
Will my efforts will be applauded, I do hope so.
For morality and ethics are not easy themes to ponder
A little humour might be just what the doctor ordered.
