Googol’s simply everywhere, Mamazon’s exclusive.
Big numbers likely would impress, were they not so intrusive,
but then those folk, who insidiously degrade our hard won grace,
are constantly, annoyingly, always in our face.
When the grass can grow untainted, and multiply in foison
and healthy sustenance prevails without the need for poison
it’ll be because we can commute opinion for the better
turn greed to need across the globe with immunity unfettered
but there’ll be no hope for freedom on the highways of the net
until some point in future time, if we do not forget
that much of our entitlement, accustomed as we are,
will fall into the purses of all those who would be tzar.
The truth would like to catch ‘em out for being so damned brash
yet if we give up easily, we’ll all be turned to ash.

Thank you for sharing the beauty and inspiration:
The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.
