The Scheme of Things: Poetry

True ownership
Is a myth:
We do not
Own even our
Bodies,
Which evict
Us all in the end.
~
Nothing
In this life
Belongs to us;
All these material
Things we hold
Onto are always
Demolished by Time.
~
So why this fighting
And bickering
Over things that
Mean so little
In the scheme of things?
