We often talk about wealth being a gateway to power; as a way to empower the poor and so on. The truth I have realised however is that it is power that is a gateway to wealth. Without power your wealth is merely sitting in a shallow pocket, waiting to be snatched away by a passing pickpocket.
It is this nature of our economy that makes politics so attractive to those hungry for the riches. Once in a while someone comes up trying to improve the lives of the people; with genuine care. The pigs will drag them down into the mud and turn them into one of their own or they get trampled on, and we never see them rise again.
So I seek neither power nor wealth. I got appetite for neither politicking or gambling. I just tick away a second at a time. Let the pigs have the farms and all the slush there in.
Allow me my mind and my bliss.
