The Car Of Jagernathi - Poem by Anthony Weir

The Sufi Malamatis
led sinful lives
so they could do good and worship God
without expectation of heavenly reward.

But we lead sinful lives
because the only other options
are social or actual suicide.

The worst that we do
to each other is nothing compared
with what we do to mammals, fish and birds.

Outliving evolution
we are all idiots-savants
stupefied by the tyranny
of our concocted words.
