More Miserables

Not everyone who steals is Jean Valjean,
With starving mouths at home to feed that day;
Some want to dry their hair, or watch a film,
Or hear an album, but don’t want to pay.

I don’t think ideology does this.
Whatever class, it’s more how people feel;
Some people would not, will not ever pay
For anything that they can merely
Steal

TST (Time Saving Tip) #1

TST1

There are those for whom “arguments”
Are a matter of force and will
Rather than right or wrong –

There is no winning arguments with
People of this kind, because
Not surrendering
Is more important to them
Than being right

One irony of this is
What they are usually arguing about
Is what is right
And what is wrong

But there method of arguing indicates
They are neither familiar nor particularly concerned
With either concept

Moral Absence

“Run gold between your fingers…”

Take what you will, take what you can,
Leave others to their woes;
Run gold between your fingers and
Run sand between your toes

Stand there, in moral splendor while
Your fawning praises ring:
A choir of earthly sycophants
Employed by you to sing

Tell everyone the value of
The few men such as you:
And should you die before your time
It might be
Overdue
