Thoroughly Self-Defeating

Poem By Charles Chaim Wax

I walked into the office
Peter F looked tired
and when I sat he said,
The man is worthless.'
The strongest condemnation
yet
of this guy we both knew.
'he only reacts to fear
and that's most of the time
and he'd sell
his own mother
if it meant
his survival.'
I intoned, 'The Buddha said...'
'Bernstein, stop
with the conversion.
I'm Catholic
gotta be
else my wife
would throw me
out.'
'Anyway, '
I said,
'forget the Buddha
just the fellow's completely
a manifestation of
self-concern
so when he harms
others
there's no
internal registration
just fear
diminshing
for the moment...'
'But the moment
for him, '
sighed Peter F,
'has turned out
to be
a lifetime.'
