Rules of any Society

Whenever there is insistence,
smell a rat.
For events are pitchers
stacked one over another.
Each pitcher is so fragile
and the balance precarious.
That is life for you.

If you look at certainty
there are unjust arrangements in place
put together by threat
and intermittent violence.
So whenever you see insistence,
smell a rat.

The stack of pitchers
surely crashes one day,
like all colonies of the world
through ages,
through revolutions,
through fallen kingdoms.

So, it is better to have a
roller-coaster civilization.
Fall, and stand up,
fall again to stand up once more.
So, whenever you see insistence,
smell a rat,
and turn away your face.
