The Complexity of Convenience

Complex conveniences

Upward mobility

Separated families

National fragility

We look for more

We long for less

The new things existence

Drives constant discontentment

Modern problems

Working so hard to relax

Driven to distraction

Simple living seems hard to capture

Each new object

To set our affections

Places to go

Never ending attractions

Be and do and see and explore

The eyes of man are never satisfied

They lust for more

And more and more

Chasing wind

Pushing ahead

Exploring exploration

Is there anything left?

Taste refines

Expenses rise

Comforts lure can draw compromise

Is the quiet life possible

In the endless big top show

Opting out seems out of reach

The claws of modernity’s seep

Grasp us all, brings us to our knees

    I like the line about “comfort’s lure can draw compromise.” It’s a challenge to be carefully considered.
