I Know of people
This culture I am about to talk is anachronistic.
It goes against the Zeitgeist fabric
We are all taught to stick.
But rebel that I am, I intend to go against the tide.
After all, Who said, flowing with the tide
Does at all times provide safe and smooth ride?
For greater reasons, I know of people whose values are to:
Show off less of themselves,
Downplay what they are capable of,
Manifest only modest of what they possess,
And are more gregarious than they are narcissists.
Suffices to say all these at a price:
They are at the bottom list material wise.
Diseases, hunger, savagery, war, natural and man made disaster
Yes, they have had to immensely suffer.
But who is to say, at the hands of their detractors,
Coterminous calamities and miasma, haven't we all
The comity style of life, over millions of years that has
Is now under threat by cynosure individual hedonist.
Driven by excessive avarice,
He will not rest at ease
Before he brings the antediluvian man and his own
