What If? A Dilemma

What if Adolph Hitler
wrote the best poem ever?
Thank God, that isn’t
something we ever
have to consider.

What if Idi Amin
wrote the best novel ever?
Thank God, that isn’t
something we ever
have to dwell on or in.

But there are others —
poets, novelists, artists —
moral degenerates.
Do they get by on their
literary merits
or should they be held
accountable
and their work
rejected
or should their work
be judged separate?
