Uno Hoo

they who have no grasp
of philosophical problems
believe that they have solved them
with trivial bromides
and hackneyed buzzwords

they who do not love
speak of peace and understanding
join the fashionable causes
and denounce with arrogance
those who admit to doubt

they who have not suffered
abandonment and destitution
can only offer charity
with a cunning heart
and half a hand

they who honestly face the world
with all its adorable symmetry
and its hideous monstrosities
find fascination in this life
and leave it contented
