After Romans 7:7-25

A puzzle: a law
says there is a wrong,
and you must do right
(think speed limits).
But the mere fact
of the law lead us
to break it (what’s
five miles over
the limit, anyway?).
What is meant
to produce a good
leads to the creation
of a wrong. Perhaps
it’s not the law;
perhaps it’s the DNA.
