Don’t avoid discipline.

You have learned ways to make a living

for your body.  Now learn to support

your soul.  You wear fine clothing.

How do you dress your spirit?


This world is a playground

but none of it is real.


They exchange imaginary money.

Night comes, and they go home tired

with nothing in their hands.
