POEM: Eminently Bad Business

Some might suggest that we run everything like a
This is eminently bad

The notion that everything should be run like a runs like a through .  This delusion leads some to believe that is the answer to all human problems.  This pathetic reduction of to beings is at the core of most major human problems that the world faces.  Most people would consider it absurd to run your like a business, or raising , or being a best friend, or virtually any enterprise that would benefit from centering one’s outside of one’s own parochial interests.  The most valuable things in are not things.  Such “things” should not be imprisoned within profit margins and subject to usury for every asset we possess.  What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his ?  If you can’t articulate some ground for your to reside, then the only advice would be: make sure you get a really good price for your ; don’t sell yourself short.  Of course, if your has a price, and you are selling yourself, don’t be surprised that others treat you like a prostitute when going about your business.

“Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it! For I should suffer the misery of devils were I to make a whore of my .” — Thomas Paine.
