Others do the same and remain poor.
Marriage fills one with energy.
Another, it drains.
Don’t trust ways.
A means flails about like a donkey’s tail.
So always add the gratitude clause:
‘if God wills’.
You may be leading a donkey, no, a goat, no, who can tell?
We sit in a dark pit and think we’re home.
We pass around delicacies.
You think this is preachy double-talk?
Those who do not breathe the ‘God willing’ phrase,
Live in a collective blindness.
Rubbing their eyes
in the dark,
