Idle Zen vs. The Active Capitalist Agenda

Thoughts on Capitalism; an idea focused on nasty addiction to things like productivity, profit, progressive projections, promoting the private sector and persecuting the poor.

Doing something is better
Than nothing
The devil makes work
For idle hands
These are the words
Of mathematicians
Bean counters
Who only understand
The value of One
And multiples from thereon
Zero’s value forgone
When does One find
Time . . .
To meditate the mind
