#393 – Fable

for Sunday Scribblings:

We tell ourselves the lies we want to hear

and take it as the truth

rather than bear the horror

of our own inadequacies.

And the deepest fable we tell ourselves yet

is that our own prosperity is small

and others larger than they look,

so we can go on in the comfort of our heated homes

while the poor shiver in the queue for a food bank.

Ten reasons to care about inequality
