Invisible Vampires (A Four By Six)

INVISIBLE VAMPIRES

They hover all round us
Tell me you don’t feel them
Be trusting, be open
But be nobody’s fool

Playing The Fool

PLAYING THE FOOL

Attraction
Then attachment
Even knowing better now
I remember it well

“One sees them everywhere – businessmen hoisting themselves up on tiptoe, struggling desperately to succeed. They are overflowing with anxieties so there is no longer even any room for love of their fellow beings. They are, therefore, themselves unloved and regarded as being no longer human.”

…..– Chuang Tzu (c. 369 BC –  c. 286 BC)

Expectations

EXPECTATIONS

Two children were each given an acorn to plant.

The first was interested, pleased, impressed, deeply moved as it gradually grew into an oak tree, a transformation she could never have anticipated, scarcely have believed possible.

The other was bitterly disappointed.

She had wanted a beech tree.

Science

SCIENCE

That thirst
To understand
The how
Never mind
The why

Exit

EXIT

The weakened ego
Exhausted by eternal strife
Bows, gives up the ghost

At realising
It’s always your assumptions
That lead you astray

Hidden Cost

HIDDEN COST

To seek for fame a bridge too far
To hide from view beneath a mask
Subject of yarn after yarn bizarre
Who needs to take on such a task?

Being Cool (A Four By Six)

BEING COOL

Ah, things we’d rather be
No, don’t let us go there
We’ve been here long enough
To know where longing leads

Looking For God

The Old Prophet went up into the mountains in search of God, and there he had a great Realisation.

And when he returned again to the tents of his people, they gathered round him and said, “Tell us, O Prophet, what manner of creature is this God?”

And he looked at them for a long moment, deep in thought.

And finally he said, slowly and unblinkingly, “God is a verb.”

And behold, the people bowed down and worshipped dictionaries.
