Two Ways And Other Things

There are two ways
to lead people -I mean the big mass, not mess,
cause, the mess is done at higher levels,
and if you start asking what is more higher then that,
I will tell you right now, god! , and it does not matter how you see it!
cause that is diversity not adversity! -
One, is to confuse them, and tell them there will be no way for an escape
without my help!
Two is to persuade them- it is win-win, better then the 'All or nothing'
with denial and setback.
but persuasion is confusing bit by bit,
it is steaming the emotions, creating a human 'spontaneous' report, and then looking for weakness to elicit some pleasure -people like pleasure, who does not? -

Is there anything else, different, futuristic, different from lean on me, or
scratch my back I will scratch your back as if it is mine,

something really beautiful?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
