2 Limericks, by Jack O’Lantern:
“There was a Young Man in pursuit,
Of the Desires he wanted to chew;
He got what he wished,
And the Devil then did,
Laugh with haughty amuse.”
Young Man: Is there any completion within this turning wheel of viscious wantage? Of consuming? Of a New Thing & a New Yearn? Dost everything fade and die away – including the mindful desire of a Thing? For I find that once I possess what I had thirsted for – the passion rots to death and an untrodden longing is born anew. Devil, why dost you laugh with haughty amuse?
Devil: Young Man, why dost you cry? Have you not every Thing? Perhaps I laugh because perhaps it is everything that turns into nothing within the moving hearts of Men.
Young Man: So then how may one be Full?
Devil: There is a Burning Man over there…
“There was an Old Man who had sought,
The burning of all he had bought;
He kindled the fire,
And burned his Desire,
And a flame arose in his Heart.”
