Accept no predictions from a seer
who places small value on happiness.
He may have a way with ropes and pulleys.
So do cable cars, and the view is clearer.
Unless poverty is your goal, say less
if not nothing to those artists who freeze
at the thought of financial thriving. Wealth
is no crime. Life is the time you have been
given to increase your gifts. Ignore rifts!
Beyond forgiveness and permission, health
in all her juicy flavours seeks to win
your favour. Sour grapes can never uplift.
If you must, heed only the prophet who
views profit with no opposite as true.
