       Hey, the form is loose but I think the message gets through. First effort in many moons, give me a break! Thanks for getting this far anyway. You shall be rewarded...

    dotsThe Devil is in the Detailsdots

    Relax my Cad yet listen well
    and contemplate the bounds of Hell
    and mankind's cornucopia
    from my own horn of plenty

    designed it is to fill their plates
    ample enough to seal their fates
    they gather such low hanging fruits
    like driven beasts in wild pursuits

    the fruit of knowledge like cocaine
    did surely drive them all insane
    within without the this or that
    regardless of each caveat

    it's pointless boy until you die
    for every truth portends a lie
    a mind creates contrived illusion
    so what's the point of grand delusion

    in quest for God and universe
    your lifetime remains far too terse
    my secret is that knowledge serves
    to benefit confusion

    so now our bargain is fair trade
    you've asked of me and I have paid
    and I will call at payment due
    all of the wise men just like you

      Do you think if they climbed higher, the fruit would have been purer knowledge?

    So ignorance is bliss? I'm not quite sure. I've known some very unhappy ignorant people.

    Still, this did lead me to ponder much. The danger of too much knowledge . . . or just enough to make it dangerous . . . does seem a real threat. I know it's tripped me up many times!

    Interesting piece.

    You wrote something new! I like it. Mans natural urge to accumulate things will be his undoing. Surely many are aware of this conundrum. The grand delusion.....well said my friend. Life is too short to live such illusion. I hope payment due is not a balloon payment, I may not be able to afford. Wise musings my friend. We shall see indeed.
