Despair is in the
air these days, but solace still
can be found afield.

Until the people
are involved, global issues
will go unresolved.

Thoreau walked Walden.
The waters whispered one word:
Simplification.

When a people know
their system’s been choked and nixed,
. . . it needs to be fixed.

The facility
of the technology has
enabled too much.

Greed, fear, and despair:
the “rational” motives of
wild-eyed bulls and bears.

Beep beep boop beep boop.
“You’re in Telephone Hell. Thanks
for holding.” Beep boop.

Lately I find much
fewer eyes to meet, with these
cell phones now replete.

Life self-realized
and with no regrets, is as
lucky as it gets.

Standard religions:
Competing superstitions!
(all lacking appeal)
