A DOCTOR’S ADVICE TO DOCTRINAIRE SOCIALISTS







A DOCTOR’S ADVICE TO DOCTRINAIRE SOCIALISTS

 

You may think you can harness all winds,
channel all waters the way you want them,
control the very nature of everything.

You may think you can manage all the people,
divert them into the pens your theory dictates,
command they command you to command.

You will be disappointed.

You cannot suppress to express.
You must be careful to love.

Everything is not rational;
the earth can shake unexpectedly.
Every being is not analytical;
we do strange things out of instinct.

Friends, don’t be over  confident.
Realise life’s limitations, its chance.
Grow and keep on growing
but don’t destroy everything you can’t understand.

Never fall out of love,
otherwise you’ll start to hate
the mystery of

creation.
