day 30

Let them not trust in
         emptiness, deceiving
         themselves;
   for emptiness will be their
         recompense.  Job 15:31

when we
   gorge ourselves
         on pleasant
         platitudes;
   stuff politician's
         hollow words
         down our throats;
   imbibe bottle after
         bottle of
         fragrant whines,
is it any wonder
we feel so
      empty
all the time?
