ECCLESIASTIC BENT
(10/20/17)

when
modern civilization
crushes us
beneath the
complexity
of created
woe

there's
nothing better
than the Book
of Ecclesiastes
to strip away
the meaningless
constructs

to vent
the world
of its
vanity

to clear
the air
for the soul
to breathe
a cleaner atmosphere
of basic
need

steadily
the facetious fog
of society
dissipates
with each
passing chapter

with each
passing verse

the simplicity
of the sun
finally
filters through

to cast
shadows
only upon
our earthly
joys
