This is an Inspirational Poem that talks of Abundance and Prosperity
Lousy At Math
Once a group of thieves stole a rare diamond
larger than two goose eggs.
Its value could have easily brought three thousand horses
and three thousand acres of the most
fertile land in Shiraz.
The thieves got drunk that night to celebrate their great haul,
but during the course of the evening the effects of the liquor,
and their mistrust of each other grew
to such an extent.
they decided to divide the stone into pieces.
Of course then the Priceless became lost.
Most everyone is lousy at math and does that to God-
dissects the Indivisible One,
by thinking,by saying,
“This is my Beloved, he looks like this and acts like that,
how could that moron over there
It is hard to see God or Goodness in everyone, isn’t it? This Inspirational Poem tells a story about abundance and prosperity and the loss of it.
