Our Needs and Wants


The world is slave to needs.

The need must become your slave. You must learn to use your modern conveniences –not to be used by them.

The more you want the more miserable you are.

Wanting is the state of perpetual restlessness.

Want nothing and you will have everything.

The Sarcastic And Mad Scorpion


The Sarcastic And Mad Scorpion

A Poem by Anonymous

Whose scorpion is that? I think I know.
Its owner is quite sad though.
It really is a tale of woe,
I watch him frown. I cry hello.

He gives his scorpion a shake,
And sobs until the tears make.
The only other sound’s the break,
Of distant waves and birds awake.

The scorpion is sarcastic, mad and deep,
But he has promises to keep,
Until then he shall not sleep.
He lies in bed with ducts that weep.

He rises from his bitter bed,
With thoughts of sadness in his head,
He idolises being dead.
Facing the day with never ending dread.

With thanks to the poet, Robert Frost, for the underlying structure.

Affair

Free verse by jay

I cannot help but stop and look at the lifelong, fratricidal feud.
Does the fratricidal feud make you shiver?
does it?

I cannot help but stop and look at the sentimental, real romance.
Does the real romance make you shiver?
does it?

Just like a secret idea, is the foolish flirtation.
Crunch.
Why is it so fat?
