No Title Needed

See a people in the valley
Dancing to the music of voice
Strings pipes and drums
Happy and drunk in meaningless chants
Exposing the vulnerabilities of their eyes
And ears to tales that gladdens their heart for nothing
They rejoice in what is given
Which are shadows of
What is not seen
They careless
To them detail is delay
And excellence is superstition
They discuss the frivolous
And give no thought to relevance
They pay for the forbidden with their gold
And spend the dime on what is precious
The liar is their linguist and the ignorant their spokesperson
Their leaders don’t understand and the followers sleep
They are many with few lonely leaders.
