“One who’s sick of sickness isn’t sick”
    ~ Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, chapter 71

Why wear the clothes of modern manufacture
Polyester acrylic nylon viscose why
When natural fabrics look and feel better
From the outside
Be modern close to the skin
That’s never felt this touch
Through the generations
Why shock
From without
For comfort’s sake
Or somebody else’s
Insatiable bank account?

Why eat the food of modern agriculture
Fertilizers pesticides herbicides cans why
When organically produced sustenance tastes better
Going within
Be modern under the skin
That’s never been cheaply nourished this way
Through countless generations
Why shock
The body
For vitality’s sake
Or somebody else’s
Insatiable bank account?

Why pop the pills of modern science
Painkillers antidepressants antibiotics immunosuppressants why
When homeopathic and herbal remedies coexist better
Deep inside
Be modern in the ebb and flow
That’s never known these interactions or side effects
Through untold generations
Why shock
The blood
For health’s sake
Or somebody else’s
Insatiable bank account?

Why form the relationships of modern culture
Nonsmoker churchgoer athletic stylish why
When subtle intuition guides better
With its still small voice
Be modern in the heart
That’s never been confused hurt broken this way
Through any past generations
Why shock
From within
For wholeness’ sake
Or somebody else’s
Insatiable bank account?
