Pandora's Jar


Who blames the axe
for the fallen tree

or the spear
for the battlefield dead?

Who accuses clay
or the potter's wheel?

Who welcomed us
into your house?

All, I was given
for you

and willed nothing
but was made

to open
and to carry.




.
When his detractors accused Clay, he'd beat them up and say 'name's Ali, b***h'.
But seriously, I don't think the author's fundamental assumption  that people blame the jar and not Pandora, holds water, and that in a way sinks the poem
The last two lines are good: for some reason, they paint a picture of a woman carrying an open jar.
