Encumbered by a chronic lack of care,
The privileged their arrogance lay bare,
Excuses oft abound
Unfairness to confound,
But ne’er a thought their status to forswear.
Then comes the time for Reaper to attend,
When all and sundry reap their dividend,
No measure of success
Shall Destiny redress,
The Elements consume all in the End!
Vain aspiration is a transient cause,
Life’s deeper values beg command a pause –
The joy of what’s To Be
In Here-and-Now you see,
Priorities appraised will gain applause!
