diffuse they, in a scatter
that be the matter.
Most mortals think they would live
death is not the one they believe
never the wise feel the same as they understand
life is impermanent and would disband
the period of life is fixed for all born.
The permanency is assumed by the go -between
more precise with the dull-headed and in-between
those who conclude they are eternal
break law and snap family ties
usurp, hoard and acquire with tries.
They accumulate material largess with great greed
as far as their intellect deciphers in a deed
mercenary affluence to them is by far the best
push to the oblivion the spiritual thoughts to test
dismantle the treasured values to a semblance.
They dash the ethics against the wall in a kind
fly high with immortality in mind.
not knowing their end is very near
hold to the bosom their life so tight
