No Blame—No Shame[1]

No blame—No shame;

That’s not the game.

No one’s at fault,

No one to name.


Neither me nor you,

Nor anywho.

Ah ha! Ha ha!

No one to fault,

No one to shame.

Blame patterns and issues,

Expose them by name!

[1] “I call [it] no-fault reconciliation—the recognition that we are all of a kind, with the same vulnerabilities, the same possibilities, and the same needs for God and each other.” C. Eric Lincoln, “Coming Through the Fire: Surviving Race and Place in America” (Duke University Press, 1996, page 157)
