Indras and Apathy

Is it ok to not want anything,
Other than to live, in peace
and solitude and common respect
of life?

No. It’s not ok.

Because if you don’t promote
peace and solitude and common
respect, how do you figure
it will become real?

So, no, unfortunately, it’s not ok
to not want anything.
Not wanting anything is like a child
who wants to play video games

The child, with no recognition
of how those games,
the electricity,
the plastic,
the technology,
the clothes
the roof
the warmth
the wealth,

came to be or continue to be.
And the child says,

I don’t want anything
except to play these video games.
If you think you don’t want anything
check your apathy
and when you check your apathy
remeber you don’t care
and then go back to telling yourself
you don’t want anything
except peace and solitude and common respect.

And down they go…
