Sure things promised shine with oil of a snake,
Faith in hawked guarantees is huge mistake.
Sturdiest pillars collapse into sand,
Such is the lot of every woman and man.
Keep your eye on the prize, stay in the game:
Zero sum endings leave all of us lame.
No need for despair or gnashing our teeth,
Just keep accepting lies of our beliefs.
Where’s escape as corporeal being?
Must look high above to staunch heart’s bleeding.
