On the Soles of your Shoes

Diamonds are so cheap
only the excessive greed
of man, his profit
create a shortage of such,
gullibility a joy!

    I agree with you. It' all about money and being greedy. I am not greedy and don't have much money, but I have friends that I treasure. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    4 the super rich, the bullys fate, what's in store, 4 the hogs debate, very true Harry mate, but will they slip through the, camels needle eye gate, when judgement comes, true blue, when money wont suck you through, a pain in the ole prostate, get it gone the ill gotten dues, how do it go "the rich have more chance, of slipping a camel through the eye of a needle, than entering the kingdom of heaven" ?

    So true Harry. A great tanka. Not much into jewelry as I've gotten older. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Yeah, Harry, the truth shines in this tanka of yours, and truth shines brighter in the mind, than a diamond can to the eye. You asked about the word: Attawapiskat, from my poem title. Attawapiskat is the name of several things all connected: a town in northern Ontario, the name of a Reservation, and the First Nation name of the Northern has an even more ancient root, which is part of the Cree genesis mythology. In Cree, Attawapiskat can mean: "People who came from the parting of the Stone/Rock."

    As in relation to the Canadian Shield plate-rock of the Hudson/James Bay area where many Northern Cree make their home.

    Dear Harry, True! The greed of man diminishes our species, only poems like this elevate us again to our desired status!

    I am lucky to be with a woman who is nt enthralled by Diamonds. It has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. Great Tanka Harry.
