Knowing Part 3

I poke and prod the world without one thought
that moves beyond the question of, “What could?”
into the realm of questions like, “What should?”
“Is this poking, prodding something I aught?”
To know what’s true through observation is
a path that seeks knowledge without regard
to consequence. There lacks the long and hard
journey that finds where self-control exists.
The scientific inquiry into
nature is but a rush madly to find
discovery as fast as one can do;
the speed one needs can only make him blind.
What science lacks clear vision to ask,
“Am I doing the most ethical task?”
