Narcissistic Song

It's sad to walk among
dreamless people and aimless folks,
cos' all they do is rave and rant
and laugh at senseless jokes.
There's no depth or wisdom,
there's no sensitivity or intelligence.
One past time is to feed their faces
and another's to waste time at empty places.
Most of them are hard of hearing
and they have trouble listening
to clear crisp voices of reason
to profound truths and perceptive visions.
It's hard to stay with these people
even for a second, even for a moment.
If they don't bring you down with mindlessness,
you'll be caught in their disorientation.
For once, I'd like to meet some like-minded people
who have such love for creatures large and small.
Who has no qualms about the pettiness
of scarcity or the hype of abundances.
Who speaks with words of clarity,
who aspires for things far and beyond,
someone who is not entwined by vanity,
someone who doesn't whine about his narcissistic song.
