The Still Pool

Madness is staring into the still pool
and asking ‘is it fair?’
Capitalism rewards the few.
Us the many. Counting pennies.
Wishing we could carry off more.
Not that you’d know it. You learn not to show it.
Unless the guest is an insufferable bore.
and you want to clear up so you can
get back to your chores.
Let the introspection wait for a happy day
When your back is clapped with yore.
Let the blood soak into the carpet
and hang the hammer back on the wall.
