Then spake he to his own heart:
“Aah! I have gathered enough, now must
I make time and enjoy very well.”
But in the night, behold, his “battery” run down.
And in the morning he was soon to be caste into
The grave like a dead dog.
Perhaps, the world is like
A big shopping mall with
Impenetrable walls around.
We mortals are free to enter
And pick anything of our choice.
But we must come and go empty-handed!
The greedy ones are
Quick to seize as many goods
As they desire – some they don’t even need.
But on exit, lo, the the surplus
Goods are impounded and sent back to the mall.
But we must come and go empty-handed, remember!
So brothers and sisters,
Why do you frustrate your own spirit?
Please enjoy! while you still can.
