  Dignified

if virtue is a noun
looking for an adjective in it
should not be the object

instead
just rest with simplicity
of good and bad
ugly and pretty
light and dark

eventually hoping
that as you climb
up and up the ladder
it may be possible
to discover the object
of adjective and
make a virtue of it

if it sounds too abstruse
that is because it is
so then
we found the adjective
objective attained

let us go up now
before the fall
