Man…tarah (reading 1)

Plutocracy of youth.
Duplicity of age.
Flagrancy of truth.
Complicity of wage.
Simplicity of action.
Complexity of thought.
Honesty of attraction.
Depravity of bought.
Pleasure in anticipation.
Despair in monotony.
Joy in synchronisation.
Derision in lobotomy.
Love, touch, think, feel.
Empathise, care, reveal



Makes me think that ...

When thinking about work and organisations at this point in the 21st century the poet Loot offers a man … tarah for us.
