aristotle with a greek salad

aristotle went to the agora
said when you want to do a thing
you show how expedient it is

this argument usually
carries the day because everybody
wants to do something expedient

but later when the action
aristotle said picking up a radish
[I don't think they had forks
not in those old days]
has to be justified
then you show that it was moral

so here we are in iraq
can we say this is expedient
or is it moral
or is it expediently moral
or morally expedient

vinegar and oil
oil and vinegar
we should be thankful
we have so many forks
