The Cautioning Rede

Listen all and blessed be,
A new rede has come to me.
The rule of three may bring deeds ’round,
But to that trinity we are not bound.
Listen well and use your thoughts,
You may have swallowed more than you bought.

The Wiccan Rede is poetry;
Not ancient law of symmetry.
It is a warning, yes; that’s true –
But a strict following we can not do.
For who decides what’s wrong or right?
Perception relies on individual sight.
So think before you quote the rede,
Are your morals meant for another’s deed?
