14 that egotist siddhartha


siddhartha and
all those
disciples

a holy man
with an
entourage?

sounds like
celebrity
to me

and that
begging thing

still the same
old rotten princely
thinking

just
in a different
kingdom

still expecting
others
to fork out
their hard won
efforts

for nothing
more in
return than
a smile
from a
delusional
egoist

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
