Your words pack such a punch!
Thank you Carol, I wasn’t sure that this piece would be taken in the way I wanted it to. A later commenter made me think that maybe I wasn’t clear in my intention.
For me, you were very clear!
I’m glad, thank you for letting me know. 🙂
A Rebuttal (Senryū)
Power is not love
Survival of the Spirit
And We are winners
Excellent senryu my friend. In re-reading mine, I fear that I gave the impression that I believe in “Money is Power” in a positive way, but in fact that was not what I was trying to convey that at all. I think that those with financial fortunes many times abuse it and use it to their unfair advantage. In many cases I also believe that they find the “99%” unworthy of having any power since they were’t smart enough or lucky enough through birth to have substantial monetary wealth.
Dom, I took your meaning the way you intended. Unfortunately, I have close association with those for whom your statement would have been viewed as a concise synopsis of their manifest beliefs. It was for them that I penned the rebuttle, not for you!
Understood my friend, I just feared that I wasn’t clear. Thank you.
Messed up – eh?
Absolutely and I believe that it is destroying our world. Very sad indeed.
