Charles Bukowski - Be Kind

we are always asked
to understand the other person's
viewpoint
no matter how
out-dated
foolish or
obnoxious.
one is asked
to view
their total error
their life-waste
with
kindliness,
especially if they are
aged.
but age is the total of
our doing.
they have aged
badly
because they have
lived
out of focus,
they have refused to
see.
not their fault?
whose fault?
mine?
I am asked to hide
my viewpoint
from them
for fear of their
fear.
age is no crime
but the shame
of a deliberately
wasted
life
among so many
deliberately
wasted
lives
is.

The good news about

The good news about risk is that the chance of incurring a loss on a given day is usually extremely low. The bad news is that when a loss does occur, its costs can be very high. QuotesChimp dual character of loss is what makes insurance possible and profitable.
