Intrigues - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Washing the dishes, slowly, one by one, as
recommended by chakra analysts, the chakra
test reveals I don't trust anyone though I love
them enough, my first three chakras are minus
values while the green heart chakra is normal so
the gurus say I should learn to trust people while
I fiercely believe all people have good intentions

But we are too stupid - our insight too limited - to
carry out those intentions successfully, most think
the end justifies the means and it is not true, no-one
wishes harm upon another except in so far as they
believe in the existence of evil and they are wrong,
don't tell me I must give these beloved idiots carte
blanche to walk all over my heart

Spiritualists say we act in a play to learn what does
not work in life; I prefer to learn through observation
and will only partake in intrigues I already know work
successfully - I am not here to act as a guinea pig in
various scenes learning by trial and error how not to
be selfish and cruel, to understand what people need
instead of forcing my will on them

Everybody suffers from lack of insight while the most
dangerous are the so-called professionals…
