Round and round the lamp

Flies the moth,

Free of lifely-worries.

Unlike the troubled-man

Who is weighed down by the thoughts.

Thoughts: about survival;

What to eat;

What to wear;

Where to sleep.

The insect worries about nought.

For its food will always come to eat.

Its clothing needs no change.

It needs not an abode!

How I wish I could

Live a life,

White fly

As free as the moth’s?
