    "WILL YOU BE READY?"

    ACCEPT WHAT YOU HAVE, FORGET THINGS YOU WANT,
    YOU CAN'T TAKE THEM WITH YOU, SO, DON'T LET THEM TAUNT!
    IT'S NORMAL TO "ENVY", FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALL,
    BUT "ENVY", IS SINNING! TIME TO GIVE "LORD" A CALL?

    SO MUCH TEMPTATION, IS OFFERED TODAY,
    YOU'LL ACCEPT IT WITH SMILES, TIL IT COMES TO PAY DAY!

    KEEPING UP WITH THE OTHERS, THAT'S ALL IT'S ABOUT!
    YOU'LL FIND YOURSELF STRESSED, ALL YOUR PAY CHECK'S PAID OUT!

    YOU'LL SHUFFLE YOUR BILLS, TO SEE WHICH YOU'LL PAY,
    THEY'RE MORE THAN YOU MAKE! SO, YOU STILL WANT TO PLAY?
    YOU'LL PAY ON THESE ITEMS YOU BOUGHT OUT OF "PRIDE",
    AGAIN, "PRIDE" IS SINNING! DO YOU NEED "SOMEONES" GUIDE?

    YOU'LL PASS ON YOUR OFFERINGS AT CHURCH OUT OF "GREED",
    GUESS WHAT? "GREED" IS SINNING! ARE YOU SURE YOU STILL NEED?

    THREE STRIKES AND YOUR OUT! WITH THE BILLS THAT ARE'NT PAID!
    YOUR STUCK IN A RUT! MAYBE A "PRAYER" SHOULD BE MADE?

    "HE'S" ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU, AND NOT ASK A DIME,
    "HE" WATCHES YOU DAILY,,IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME.
    MY FRIEND, DO YOU SEE WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY?
    LIFE IS TOO SHORT,,,"HE'LL BE BACK HERE SOMEDAY!

    DO YOU WANT HIM TO FIND YOU ALL STRESSED AND DEPRESSED?
    "HE" DON'T CARE WHAT YOU OWN, OR HOW YOU ARE DRESSED.....

    DO YOU FEEL A BIT SELFISH? YOU PUT "HIM" ASIDE?
    BUT "HE'LL" ALWAYS FORGIVE YOU, "HE'LL" STILL TAKE YOUR SIDE!

    MATERIAL ITEMS, YOUR'RE STRUGGLING FOR THEM!
    WHEN "HE" COMES BACK TO CALL,,WILL YOU KNOW THAT IT'S HIM?

    very nicely said about the life style and greed of today - I agree life should be simplified

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
