Carropionism and Esternism
Two fishermen: motive and reward
went fishing in life’s lake on karma’s boat.
Now motive was earthly and rustic
so he used a carrot to lure fish.
Reward was more imaginative
so he used a plastic bait to fish.
On the other side of the river
lived time, destiny’s poker mate.
Somehow time always called
out destiny’s baffling bluffs.
But destiny seemed
to always give time laughs.
Both poker mates watched
the fishermen cast their baits.
See life’s lake had two kinds of fish
humans and humascorpions.
The first kind were genuine
yet rare and could easily turn
into their hybrid cousins.
The second kind were futile
yet plenty and could easily spurn
Now each inhabited a part of life’s lake.
Humans were bottom feeders.
Humascorpions were top feeders.
Naturally humascorpions latched
to chance’s superficial palms
while humans hid in depth’s sands.
Each time motive’s carrot met
one of those creatures, time teased
him without giving any fish.
Next reward cast his plastic bait
into life’s water which destiny disturbed
scaring humascorpions with a swish.
By the end of the day both fishermen
went home empty-handed.
See, time fishes humascorpions
with their own tails – aftermath.
With destiny’s help in controlling
life’s water, karma’s boat sails smoothly.
Motive’s carrot is a root crop growing
from greed and envy’s seed.
And reward’s plastic toy is from illusion’s
ester that did harm to life’s lake beyond its usage.
Life is a lake bountiful with humascorpions
that never seem to learn their lesson.
All humascorpions wish to leave their lake
to where if not on Karma’s boat;
for whom if not for motive’s carrot
or reward’s plastic trinket?
So far carropionism proved
to be a jump out of the frying pan
into the scorching fire!
The same applies for esterpionism
so why not let time show you around
and destiny sail your karma’s boat?
Days prey on men
sorted out by destiny
as humans or humascorpions!
