Those Who Wait – 12th April 2022

The seduction of the capitalist
To need, to want, to own
It’s easy to trick yourself
Into feeling you have grown
Now it seems so quaint
To buy at market stalls
Next shutting down the shops
To build great shopping malls
And now their lacquer fades
As everything can be found online
It’s only a few clicks
But who really has the time?
Don’t posture like a bohemian
Of course, these things are great
But the truly great things
Are those for which you wait

You can swim all day in the sea of knowledge and not get wet.

Norton Juster
