Tao Te – 53

with but a bit of sense
I will only fear straying from the main road
keeping to this way is simple
but distraction comes easily and often

when the city is beautified
the fields become weedy
silos empty
some are dressed to the nines
conceal a bejeweled glock
indulge in food fantasies
with more things than they can use
they are the richest of robbers
this is not Tao
