Need And Greed

A boat docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village.  A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took him to catch them.


“Not very long.” they answered in unison.
“Why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?”

The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.

 

“But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

“We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives.
In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.

 

We have a full life.”

The tourist interrupted, “I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!  You should start by fishing longer every day.   You can then sell the extra fish you catch.  With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat.”

“And after that?”

“With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers.  Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. 

You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even New York City !

From there you can direct your huge new enterprise.”

“How long would that take?”   

“Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years.” replied the tourist.   

“And after that?”   

“Afterwards? Well my friend, that’s when it gets really interesting, ” answered the tourist, laughing. “When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!”

“Millions? Really? And after that?” asked the fishermen.

“After that you’ll be able to retire,
live in a tiny village near the coast,
sleep late, play with your children, (or grandchildren by that time), catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends.”

“With all due respect sir, but that’s exactly what we are doing now. So what’s the point wasting twenty-five years?” asked the Mexicans.

The Winter Of Love With My Love

 WINTER OF LOVE

Winter arrives when the weather changes
It is cold, all of nature itself recoils

And so does all of my painful feeling emerges
This month of winter really all, it annoys

It is when my lid comes aloof
Where I experience my own unresolved pain
Or my very own shadow fear proof
While I’m aware that he himself feel isn’t sane

But this is the time of rest and reflection
A moment needed for relationship restoration

Winter of love is the time for my cell growth
When I look more to myself in retrospect
And where I ask more of his love and respect
Which I understand these things we need both

It’s the time to let my love hibernate in his cave
While in the well I fall to manage my own wave

After this time of rejuvenation and healing
By the dark and freezing winter of love
Naturally I wait for the return of spring
Once again I am blessed with my love.

THE SEASON OF LOVE WITH MY LOVE

Spring 1997, Brooklyn, NYC

 Yes the feeling of hope, love, and abundance of possibilities, here
My basis of my inner healing and soul-searching soon would clear
For during my winter trip and adventure with the one I love
Again I’d be able to open my heart to feel with him the spring of love…
