Ode to ephemeral

Ode to ephemeral



Because I love music
They offer me cd's,
That I won't listen
If I am alone.

Because I love music
They offer me mp3,
That I won't listen
In the street.

Because I love music
I got a violin,
That I won't train
For an employer.

Stock of mp3 ?
Stock of cd's ?
Stock of know-how ?
All this is stock !

And stocks make us worried :
Don't bring money,
Don't bring honey,
Bring only greed.

That's why I prefer
Shows than mp3
Cinema than dvd's.
Memory than photos.



Now you can better understand why I spend less time on FaceBook ! :lol:

Hi :-)

Nice work, especially these words:
That's why I prefer
Shows than mp3
Cinema than dvd's.
Memory than photos.


I think that money nowadays is one of the most dreadfull evil...

Yes, but... I focused on a more dreadfull evil : the materialism when this one is bad for nature health :

What will we do with mp3 and discs ? Why do we get it ? stock, stock, stock holmes, Sherlock Holmes !!! what will nature do with all this ? Moreover all these things overcharged our unconsciousness : we are afraid to lose mp3, to lose discs. Where is the time when we accepted to lose things, to hear a song only once but deeply ? Where are the years when we were not telling ourselves "I have to know everything ! I must listen to Imagine of John Lennon because everybody tells me to listen to it !"
