Pearly Gates: Shadorma


How strange t’is
For these billionaires
To still be
Craving more
May they awaken and find
Peace and compassion

  1. That reminds me of an old song.
    It’s called That’ll Be the Day.

    It’s a good thought though.

  2. They may have to settle for peace and compassion. I doubt they’ll ever see the pearly gates but really, what do I know about that?

  4. Alas, they must be tortured souls, those who just crave more and more. Peace and compassion they know not.

  5. How true most billionaires are caught in their own intricate web of wants and desires. The few who break free become monks seeking enlightenment.
    Thank you Ben for this beautiful post.
