Once When the Sun Hovered Overhead

Once When the Sun Hovered Overhead

There is no point, no plausible purpose, 
in living life seeking and possessing 
what will eventually be lost 
to others who will, like you, 
temporarily possess what was once yours; 
Then the new possessors hold on 
to your goods for a period of infusible time, 
and then they will die out of existence, 
like you did, bequeathing ultimately 
to the next in line, to have and to hold 
what was once yours, 
just treasured trinkets made of glass and gemstones,
held and embraced 
by your hands and fingers, 
once when the sun hovered overhead, 
like the present.
There is no point, no plausible purpose, 
in working hour after hour 
of diffused labor for most of your life, 
only to end up dead someday, 
and all your goods, 
bought with money earned by the working of the elbows, 
are transferred to someone else who,
like you, is working hour after hour to possess 
what you once possessed before finally dying, 
after working all your life 
for someone else.
