affluence kills the gods – October 16

10.16

affluence kills the gods

believing that nothing else

is needed and all that is,

is all.

 

harder than the camel’s eye

the illusion of plenty fosters,

in place of perspective,

despair.

 

and happy faces smile until

it does not go their way

and then the tiger blood

boils.
