we
all know
from the collected wisdom
passed down since antiquity
that self
is the sole sin
of humanity
and the solution
for self
is service
to God
and our
fellow man

work
in other
words

who really
wants
to believe
that self
is the center
of all or our
problems?
who really
wants
to work?

practically
no one

we would
rather take out
our se7en deadly sins
our pretty playthings
and polish them
roll them around
for awhile and smile
at a job well done
before returning them
satisfied
to the box
of self

there is
only
one sin
and there is
only
one answer

I am
one
but not
the other
